CEO Comments

“Wisconsin – improving due to state leadership, still has a way to go.  Workforce is limited due to aging population not replaced well by births and tendency for college kids to leave after college…but many return.”

“Both Ohio and Wisconsin are becoming more business-friendly and are willing to help businesses get established while supporting critical worker training.”
