How Wisconsin is trying to head off a major worker shortage

PBS’s Economics Correspondent Paul Solman reports on the labor shortage in Wisconsin and what employers are doing to fill needed positions. The article begins: “In Wisconsin, ‘Help Wanted’ is on virtually every restaurant window, store front and city bus. With an aging population and few immigrants, the state could have a shortage of 45,000 workers by 2024, which could pose a threat to business.”

UWM Professor Emeritus of History, Marc Levine, is interviewed in this report.
