Wisconsin businesses say they are experiencing a workforce shortage – quite a difference from the situation during the height of the coronavirus pandemic when thousands were off the job. Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce says there a “countless openings for good, family-supporting careers” now. Wisconsin’s unemployment rate was nearly 15-percent in April of last year, but it has fallen to three-point-eight-percent. That means only eight states have a lower rate of people out of work. Wisconsin bosses say finding enough workers tops their list of concerns, followed by the need to reduce regulations.
