The State of Working Wisconsin 2021

In time for Labor Day, our annual State of Working Wisconsin report will be released as a four-part series next week:

  • Jobs: Tuesday, 8/31
  • Unions: Wednesday, 9/1
  • Wages: Thursday, 9/2
  • Worker Experiences: Friday, 9/3

For more than two decades, the State of Working Wisconsin has presented the workers’ perspective in the state:

  • Who is winning, and who is being left out?
  • Where is disparity growing?
  • What’s happening to the economic chasm separating Black and white workers in the state?

In 2020, COVID-19 touched nearly every worker, and the Wisconsin economy moved into uncharted territory. As a result, we launched a new digital report to meet the reality of the crisis, providing more timely updates.
