Building the Dream: Milwaukee


Note: Building The Dream Milwaukee originally scheduled for Tuesday, April 14th will be rescheduled for a future date. We will continue to monitor the situation closely.

Technological innovation, the rise of the gig economy and a growing emphasis on four-year college degrees has led to a nationwide shortage of skilled labor. This lack of skills-based trade workers is not only hurting employers but also poses a significant threat to the continued health of the nation’s economy. 

How are cities like Milwaukee working to address this labor shortage and what role can policymakers - across all levels of government - play in helping to prepare workers for the jobs of today and tomorrow?

In the third stop on our “Building The Dream” tour, The Hill will bring together elected officials, labor experts and employers for a series of conversations on strengthening the pipeline of skilled workers.
