WI Looks to Future of Workforce

Ending enhanced federal unemployment benefits may solve Wisconsin’s worker shortage in the short-term, but a new study says the state will likely have troubles filling jobs for years to come.

UW-Madison economist Noah Williams is out with an analysis that says Wisconsin’s long-term worker needs will only be solved by getting new workers into the pipeline and bringing new families to the state. Williams says the numbers clearly show Wisconsin’s workforce is aging faster than the rest of the country.

He says even with low unemployment numbers, businesses in the state will need workers going forward.
