Hear from Jeremiah

“Life is like I did a 360. I got benefits, I got paid vacation, I can help my family.”

Jeremiah graduated from Jobs for Life in 2009 and worked steadily in various temporary jobs until being chosen for the opportunity to learn more about work at Wepfer Marine. It’s hard work: employees are exposed to the elements of the river in all seasons, and sometimes work long hours. Jeremiah signed on and has thrived; his story is a great one.
