Hi Rebecca. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

Unless the employer is still in business and kept the copy, which is highly unlikely, the only government agency that would have copy of your W2 from 30 years ago would be social security administration. IRS only keeps last 3 - 6 years and employers do not share such information with anybody else.
