Employees of Goodwill go to work each day just like everyone else. They stock shelves in retail stores, drive trucks, balance spreadsheets in accounting, manage people and much more. They earn their paycheck just like everyone else. But at the same time they are also earning a second paycheck. They are helping fund, through their work, training and job programs what will put people with employment barriers in our community back to work.
