DCEDC working to develop younger workforce

With signs that there are fewer young workers in Wisconsin,  the Door County Economic Development Corporation is working to change that trend close to home.  A Wisconsin Public Policy analysis of census data found that the state's workforce has declined by nearly 35,000 workers over four years.  That's in conjunction with an overall decline in residents under 18-years old who are a key source of younger workers.  DCEDC Workforce Development Specialist Kelsey Fox says the corporation is taking steps to stem that trend in Door County and keep younger workers close to home.  



The DCEDC is also working with high school age students with visits to businesses taking part in Manufacturing Day on October 4th to see the career opportunities available in Door County.
