Gov. Scott Walker proclaimed October as Disability Employment Awareness Month to recognize an integral part of Wisconsin's workforce; workers with disabilities. With the most recent monthly data showing the state's labor participation ranking seventh best in the country, Wisconsin businesses continue to succeed in connecting individuals, and more specifically individuals with disabilities, with gainful and rewarding employment.
Gov. Scott Walker this month proclaimed September as Workforce Development Month, giving us all a reason to celebrate the economic success Wisconsin has enjoyed under his leadership. Much of this success can be attributed to the exceptional talent and dedication of Wisconsin's workforce, along with the strong partnerships the state has cultivated with other private and public organizations. As the secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development, I am responsible for carrying out the governor's agenda to develop the talent that advances Wisconsin's economy.
