No Concern

The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development says a slowdown in state job growth is no reason for concerns. The U-S Department of Labor reports growth of 93-hundred jobs in the Badger state when comparing 2019 to last year. That jobs number was 27-thousand. The state agency’s chief economist, Dennis Winters, says a key reason for the slowdown is that Wisconsin’s unemployment rate remains low at three-point-three percent. That means there aren’t nearly as many people looking for a job.
