When we talk about WorkSource helping people get back to work, it isn’t hypothetical. Every day, our staff assist real people—just like you—who may need something as simple as a resume review, or something as life-changing as re-training. Everything we do is in service of a singular goal—re-employment at a quality wage.

But how many people do we actually help?

In the year 2023, we helped 1,124 job seekers return to work. With 251 business days in a year, that’s a little over 4 of our customers who got back on their feet, every day.

More impressive still, 59% of these job seekers were placed into jobs that pay at least $50,000 per year—32% higher than the current minimum wage in Washington state ($16.28/hour as of May 1, 2024 or $33,862/year).

These job seekers came into our centers to find work. And we are proud to have been a part of their journey to re-employment.

If you’re looking for work, visit your local WorkSource center. We help people find re-employment by providing resources, support services, and job training. Meet with an Employment Specialist to find out how you can become one of our next 1,124 job seekers.
