MENOMONEE FALLS – Department of Workforce Development (DWD) Deputy Secretary Chris Hagerup will be at Wacker Neuson’s Menomonee Falls campus to celebrate National Apprenticeship as part of a new apprenticeship standards signing. The media is invited to attend and interview representatives from Wacker Neuson, the Association of Equipment Manufacturers and Deputy Secretary Hagerup from 9:30 to 11 a.m.
Wisconsin was the first state in the nation to establish laws creating registered apprenticeship back in 1911. Since then, registered apprenticeship has grown from 625 apprentices in its first year to more than 11,000 in 2018.
As the state’s talent development agency, DWD connects employers with a robust pool of skilled workers; assists job seekers with disabilities in achieving their employment outcomes; and oversees the state’s Unemployment Insurance, Equal Rights and Worker’s Compensation systems.
The Apprenticeship event will be held at:
N92W15000 Anthony Ave Menomonee Falls, WI
