WI Lawmakers Work On Workforce

Republicans at the Wisconsin Capitol want to move people back to work by moving them off unemployment. 

Lawmakers yesterday introduced what they are calling the Stronger Workforce plan.  It would push people to take job interviews and accept job offers by taking-away some of their unemployment benefits if they don’t.  The Republican plan would also push DWD to investigate more unemployment fraud.  Lawmakers also want to switch Wisconsin to a sliding-scale for unemployment which would mean fewer weeks of benefits while the unemployment rate is low.  Currently Wisconsin’s jobless rate is three percent.
