Wisconsin’s economy has been in a mixed position for months with unemployment hovering at or around 3%, high labor force participation rate, job openings across multiple industries.

However, hundreds of workers have been laid off and the economy of the greater Milwaukee area is “stagnant” according to economists.

Depending on which indicator you focus on, there’s evidence to show things could be going good or bad.

The results have gotten the attention of officials at the federal level.

Wally Adeyemo, deputy secretary of the U.S. Department of Treasury, traveled to Milwaukee on Thursday, along with Vice President Kamala Harris, who was touting the administration’s efforts on affordable housing, student and small business loans, and access to capital for businesses.

Adeyemo spoke at Discovery World about how Wisconsin has rebounded from the high unemployment that took place during the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, to now.
