Bringing job seekers and employers together

By Tim Kowols


Employers in Door County are still trying to figure out ways to bring more workers to the area. Prior to the recent Manufacturing Day in the Sturgeon Bay Industrial Park, the Door County Economic Development Corporation said more than 400 jobs in the field were available. Connecting manufacturers to an able-bodied workforce was a part of the reason The Joseph Project was created in Milwaukee with help from U.S. Senator Ron Johnson. The Joseph Project puts individuals through a four-day training to help them get the skills and the commitment to succeed. During his visit to the radio stations of last month, Senator Johnson said the program’s graduates in other markets are among the best entering the workforce now.



Green Bay’s St. John’s Evangelist Homeless Shelter is the closest Joseph Project site, but Senator Johnson says it hopes to branch out to other communities in the future.
