Wisconsin has a new law that will briefly continue unemployment benefits for people who are hired at certain jobs.
There was recently bipartisan legislative approval for a measure that allows Wisconsin residents receiving unemployment benefits to keep getting those checks for a short time, if they take part-time work that requires training to become full time. State Rep. Mark Honadel praised his so-called Wisconsin Wins legislation, during a bill-signing at a Peterbilt truck sales outlet in Oak Creek.
Gov. Scott Walker says he made a partial veto to get the bill to take effect this month, instead of waiting 180 days. He says the Department of Workforce Development has already heard from interested companies.
