After many doctors appointment and a foot surgery, PROMISE JOBS partnered with B S to make a contact with a local company.  B S shared information with the business about the WOTC program and the Federal Bonding program.  The company interviewed Mr. A in June and because he was preparing to have a 2nd surgery on his foot. The company indicated that they would hold the position for Mr. A until he was medically released to return to work.  Mr. A reported that he started the job making $13.00 per hour and is working 40 plus hours a week.  Mr. A indicated that this was the best Christmas gift he could have received.
