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 Wisconsin.
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.
