Changing Face of the Workforce Luncheon
Terry Ludeman, a senior level economist with the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development will present a program concerning the anticipated changes in workforce demographics at a luncheon at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, Wednesday, Oct. 22 at 11:30 a.m. The presentation and luncheon will occur at the Harry and Laura Nohr Gallery located in Ullsvik Center.
Ludeman will cover the topic of the changing demographics with respect to race and gender and how it impacts the community according to Frank Igou, assistant professor of management.
"Wisconsin has one of the highest workforce participation rates. Many people in Wisconsin work more than one job and more hours for lower wages," said Igou. "Somewhere near the date 2014, the workforce will reach a critical point as there will be more people exiting the workforce at age 65 than entering at age 18. This will have a direct effect on job availability," said Igou. Ludeman's presentation will take some of these facts into consideration and break down what they mean to an individual and the community.
The cost of the luncheon will be $9. A reservation for the luncheon and presentation can be made by contacting Peg Haese at the Department of Business and Accounting at (608) 342-1660 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
