Gaining Ground is the third and final report in the SEDLP research series. These reports have documented the labor market experiences of 732 participants in six industry-based workforce development programs over time. This report presents findings on participants two-years after the end of training and describes such information as participants’ earnings, employment, experience in the job market, job satisfaction and access to employer-provided benefits. In addition to discussing outcomes of training for all participants, the report presents outcomes of training for participant subgroups, including participants who were on welfare at the start of training.
