Expert says higher pay, incentives could help avert workforce issues
22 Sep 2022
The head of research and analytics for the Wisconsin Counties Association says higher pay for workers and government incentives could help the state avert a worsening workforce crisis.
Dale Knapp is also the director of Forward Analytics, a research group based in Wisconsin that has released a report warning of a projected decline in the state’s working age population. In an interview, Knapp said the existing workforce shortage “is likely to get much worse” and solving this issue will require intervention by both policymakers and business leaders.
