Slow but steady job growth expected in Wisconsin

MILWAUKEE (WSAU-Wheeler News)   Wisconsin will continue to have slow-and-steady job growth from July-through-September. That’s according to the latest employer survey by Milwaukee’s Manpower Incorporated. The global hiring firm says 24-percent of Wisconsin employers expect to add jobs in the third quarter of the year. Five-percent expect layoffs, for a net employment outlook of 19-percent. That’s one-percent above the current quarter – and it’s three-percent lower than the third quarter a year ago, when the Manpower Index was the highest during the current recovery.

The company expects more vigorous hiring in Metro Milwaukee. 26-percent of those employers plan to add jobs, and 5-percent expect layoffs.

Wisconsin’s job growth is expected to out-pace the nation. Only 22-percent of U-S firms expect to add jobs from July-through-September. Still, it’s Manpower’s highest projected national gain since the Great Recession began in earnest in 2008.
