ANTIGO - A small business wants to help you out with finding a job.
It may not provide a job right away, but they can help you develop the skills to get one.
Foward Service Corporation is a private nonprofit business that helps provide training, employment and support.
The focus of this program is to help prepare for the work environment and tweak resumes.
Case manager Danni Grochowski says even though it's a struggle to land a job in this economy, her goal is to help start something new.
"We decided to offer a bunch of new workshops this year to help them get out of the house and engage in something else," said Grochowski.
"Do something different. We meet with them regularly about how to stay focused, how to stay positive and we try to let them know of any new jobs out there that they can apply for. We help them do that."
A key to getting a job is building a network.
Erica Berg is also a Case Manager at Forward Service Corporation.
One of the other goals are to make a connection with employers.
"We can help pay for part of the training employees working for our company. There's also trial jobs through W2 and the work experience site too," said Berg.
"So we're looking at hopefully to setting up some more of those kinds of things this year."
The Workforce Investment Act is another option.
It helps participants interested in enhancing their education and ultimately finding a skilled labor job.
BEAVER DAM (AP) - Wisconsin Democratic voters are getting nervous over their large field of candidates running for governor.
The primary isn't until Aug. 14. No one has emerged as the clear front-runner ahead of next weekend's state convention. And no one is showing signs of dropping out.
Meanwhile, Republican Gov. Scott Walker is stockpiling resources and is in the middle of a $1.4 million TV ad campaign where he's run three ads unopposed touting his record.
Democrat Denise Hutchison, of Green Bay, says she hopes the field will narrow. She's optimistic that may happen after this weekend's state Democratic Party convention. But she also thinks whoever wins the primary will get the full support of Democratic voters.
MADISON (AP) - \Wisconsin dairy farmers have broken their streak of year-over-year production increases.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture says Wisconsin farmers produced about 2.5 billion pounds of milk last month, down 0.6 percent from 2017.
Bob Cropp is a professor emeritus at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He tells Wisconsin Public Radio that the slowdown in production is good for milk prices. Prices have been low for three straight years because of an abundance of milk on the market.
The USDA report says there were 5,000 fewer cows in the state compared to last year.
Darin Von Ruden is president of the Wisconsin Farmers Union. He says farms that remained open faced cold and snowy conditions this spring.
Cropp says some experts believe milk prices may reach $17 per 100 pounds by November.
