,. Pulling Apart: Wisconsin’s Growing Income Inequality. COWS, 2006.

While Wisconsin has a history of a relatively high level of equality, the past two decades have continuously resulted in greater wealth disparities. Wisconsin legislators need to focus on maintaining the high level of economic equality seen in previous decades by building the skills and education of Wisconsin’s workforce.

COWS and Wisconsin Council on Children & Families report Pulling Apart: Wisconsin’s Growing Income Inequality is based on Pulling Apart, a State-by-State Analysis of Income Trends published by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and the Economic Policy Institute.
