Testimony of Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation Secretary and CEO Missy Hughes
8 Feb 2022
I want to thank the Assembly Committee on Small Business Development and Chairman Oldenburg for inviting me to update the committee on the status of Wisconsin’s economy as we continue to recover from the pandemic.
There are many reasons to celebrate the progress our state has made. Wisconsin’s economy continues to grow robustly in every corner of the state. Unemployment has dropped from double-digits in the early days of the pandemic to the lowest levels in decades, while participation in the labor force reaches new highs. Wages are up and new businesses are emerging.
