Industry diversity helping Wisconsin

Door County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Steve Jenkins credits Wisconsin’s wide range of industries for helping it weather the economic storm brought on by COVID-19. According to, Wisconsin has had the third lowest increase in unemployment claims out of 50 states and the District of Columbia. Jenkins says the strength of its manufacturing has kept the state afloat compared to others since it is considered an essential business. Even if it lasts into the summer and changes do have to be made, he is confident local manufacturers will do right by their employees.

Jenkins applauds all local businesses for the way they have had to adjust to what is happening around them so they can continue to operate and take advantage of a different normal.
