GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin’s workforce will be the subject of a series of meetings this week.
Competitive Wisconsin is hosting the sessions in Platteville, Green Bay, Oshkosh, and Fond du Lac.
Spokesman Jim Wood says it’s a continuation of the group’s economic summits from two years ago.
Among the group’s recommendations at that time was to replace the state government’s Commerce Department with a public-private agency – something Scott Walker did soon after he became the governor in 2011.
State workforce development officials will appear at this week’s meetings.
Competitive Wisconsin will also explain its research project for the summer. It’s working with Milwaukee’s Manpower Incorporated to determine what the state’s workforce will look like in the next decade.
