The status of Wisconsin workers in 2017

COWS has issued their 2017 report on Working Wisconsin, and the news is generally not so good.

Urban Milwaukee, as always, provides the takeaways.

  • Job growth in Wisconsin is falling behind the rest of the nation.
  • Wages in Wisconsin are stagnant.
  • Race is a major factor in determining a person’s job opportunities.
  • The income gap between rich and poor in Wisconsin is at record levels.
  • The middle class in Wisconsin is now shrinking.
  • The hit on unions seems to go hand-in-hand with that middle-class decline.

Check out both the report and the news article.
