A UWL class that worked
to help area businesses solve current business issues is being
recognized in the UW System initiative, For Wisconsin.
During spring semester, students in Economics 330: Labor Economics
conducted labor market research and economics consulting projects for
seven area organizations. Issues they studied varied from how to
effectively use incentives to motivate job performance to forecasting
how the change in Minnesota's minimum wage may affect employers in
The feature details the class efforts in helping businesses. “Positive partnering: UW-La Crosse students analyze labor market for area businesses” has been posted to the “For Wisconsin” website. UW
System developed the website to show how the state’s public
universities, colleges and extension networks are working to improve the
state’s competitive edge by leveraging the state’s human capital,
supporting business and industry, and strengthening local communities.
