The Wisconsin economy is making headway with steady signs of recovery as we start off the beginning of 2014. Wisconsin’s unemployment rate declined to 6.1% for February, a decrease of 1.1 percentage points (pp) from a year ago and still remains below the national unemployment rate of 6.7%.
Wisconsin’s job report, which spans 12 months from September 2012 through September 2013, showed Wisconsin gained 28,000 private-sector jobs in the 12 month period, a 1.2% employment increase and ranks Wisconsin 35th among the nation in the pace of job creation.
According to the Manpower Employment Outlook Survey, the second quarter of 2014 could bring more hiring in Metropolitan Milwaukee and Wisconsin, enough to rank the area second in the nation for job growth
