Ron's Recap: December 13, 2019

This week, I had the privilege to honor Brillion's Police Chief, Jo Ann Mignon, with a WI Assembly Citation for her years of service in law enforcement and to the Brillion community. On behalf of a grateful community, I would like to thank Chief Mignon for her 26 years of service to the Brillion community and wish her many years of continued success in her future!

 Wages Up; Unemployment Down

Last week's jobs report brought great news! The nationwide unemployment rate dropped to 3.5% in November, matching a half-century low. Additionally, wages rose a solid 3.1% in November compared with a year earlier. Our economy is strong!

  Standing Up For Fox Valley Workers

This week, I joined many of my legislative colleagues in northern Wisconsin in signing a letter urging the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development not to close two unemployment insurance hearing offices located in Appleton and Eau Claire. 
Currently, only four unemployment insurance offices exist in Wisconsin. If the offices in Appleton and Eau Claire close, residents in the vast majority of the state would have to travel to either Madison or Milwaukee to appeal an unemployment compensation decision. To find out more information, read the letter here:
