Youth Workforce Readiness

By Portage County Business Council

This month marked public hearings in Madison and Wausau for the Speaker’s Task Force on Youth Workforce Readiness. At the hearing in Wausau, we heard from many Central Wisconsin individuals and organizations who have a vested interest in workforce development, such as the North Central Wisconsin Workforce Development Board, UW-Stevens Point, Skyward, the Portage County Business Council, Marten Machining, as well as other community and business leaders. We look forward to getting further guidance and input from community and business leaders on addressing this significant issue.
