Workforce Challenge:

Unfamiliar with WIOA - funded business services, Company President, Jaci Warren met with South Bay One-Stops Business & Career Centers - Gardena to discuss programs available to the business community.

Such positions included receptionist, sales, customer service, shipping, and assembler positions.
