  • Am I Paying a Competive Wage?

    Finding and Using WI Wage Date

    Scott Hodek, DWD Section Chief for the Office of Economic Advisors 

    West Centeral WI Workforce Development Board Member

    The state and nation are experiencing a major demographic shift as the overall population ages and baby boomers retire. Coupled with the trailing effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on the labor force, we are experiencing an unprecedented period of tight labor market conditions. With competition for talent heating up, the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development (DWD) economists are often asked about competitive wages for various occupations in an area.
