WAUKESHA — The Waukesha County
Business Alliance has signed a resolution supporting the Wisconsin
Manufacturers and Commerce’s Future Wisconsin Project.
The project’s goal is to make Wisconsin a vital, vibrant state 20
years from now, and will focus on talent development, attraction and
retention, business competitiveness, global engagement, government
effectiveness, life quality and entrepreneurial spirit.
The project is centered on key Wisconsin population and economic
development facts. For example, since 1997, the number of
kindergartners has not been replacing graduating seniors.
Additionally, Wisconsin will create 317,000 jobs this decade, but
will only add 15,000 working age people.
There will be a forum on the topic on Dec. 3 in Milwaukee.
