The Dwindling Wisconsin Workforce

U.S. Census data suggests that Wisconsin is losing working-age men and women and that the under-18 population is also decreasing. Such population changes could indicate a future worker shortage (particularly as increasing numbers of baby boomers retire) and may hinder efforts to grow local businesses or attract new ones to the area. Some proposed solutions include increasing efforts to attract students and workers from other states and countries as well as a renewed effort to break down barriers to employment for those who have been previously incarcerated.
