Walker looks to attract young workers

Gov. Scott Walker has asked the state legislature to approve $6.8 million for a targeted campaign to battle a worker shortage and attract veterans, young professionals, and University of Wisconsin alumni to live and work in Wisconsin.

According to reports, $3 million of the proposed funds would expand an already planned marketing campaign from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. in Chicago, Minneapolis, and Detroit, with the additional $3.8 used to fund a mobile jobs center and traveling job fair booth.

For one of the larger marketing opportunities for the state in years, we decided to put a cow, cheese, and an ear of corn on the back of a quarter. All we need to do now is change the state slogan to "Flyover Country." Why the %$#@& would any youth from Chicago, Minneapolis, or Detroit want to move here?!?

To have attraction you need to balance the rental housing market and living costs with expected pay for workers.
