Kira Dahlk. The Impact of Budget Cuts on Wisconsin’s Job Centers: Staff Losses and Service Declines. COWS, 2004.
Wisconsin’s Job Centers were created in the 1980’s to serve as facilities where job seekers and employers can “one-stop shop” for a range of employment-related services. Budget cuts have strained these facilities’ abilities to provide resources to the workers and employers of the state. This report looks at the impact shrinking budgets have on the job centers and consequently on Wisconsin’s workforce development.
