Frostman hopes to connect agencies to address workforce issues

Secretary-designee of the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development Caleb Frostman hopes state agencies can work together to address some of the employment issues facing businesses. One area of focus could be the Department of Corrections and the DWD working together to identify individuals who could benefit from vocational training while serving out their sentence. Frostman, the former executive director of the Door County Economic Development Corporation, says state agencies and private employers need to be creative in how it addresses the employee shortage and the skills gaps they are facing.

Former Governor Tommy Thompson suggested earlier this year establishing vocational training at some jails to help prisoners find work after their release and hopefully not continue the cycle of incarceration.
