News Advisory: WISCONSIN TO HONOR OLDER WORKERS
|WHO: || ||Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development Secretary Jennifer Reinert; |
Mike Bonertz, Executive Director, ADVOCAP, Inc.;
Mike Krauss, Wisconsinís OWN (Older Worker Network);
Pat Delmenhorst, Director of Employment Services, Interfaith;
Donna McDowell, Bureau on Aging and Long Term Care, Wisconsin Department of Health and Family Services.
|WHAT: || ||Wisconsin Older Workers Network Awards |
|WHERE: || ||ADVOCAP, Inc., 19 W First Street, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. |
|WHEN: || ||Friday, November 30, 2001, 2:00 p.m. |
|WHY: || ||To recognize and honor Wisconsinís older workers, who play a crucial role in Wisconsinís labor market. Wisconsinís already tight labor market is expected to be flat and even shrink over the next 10 to 15 years as baby boomers retire and fewer young people enter the labor force to replace them. Many older workers are willing and able to remain in the labor force even after they retire. Wisconsin welcomes and encourages its older workers to remain a part of the labor force not only for demographic reasons, but because their experience and strong work ethic make them a valuable resource to Wisconsinís future. |
