Welcome to the Workforce Video Library

Overview

The Welcome to the Workforce videos feature teens discussing topics ranging from youth apprenticeship and working with a disability to workplace safety and what to do if harassed on the job. The videos are modeled after the Equal Rights Division's popular 60-second videos and tailored for high school audiences.

"Teens are an important part of Wisconsin's labor force and we want their first experience in the workplace to be safe and positive," said DWD Secretary-designee Amy Pechacek. "As many of them prepare to enter the workforce for the summer months or upon graduation, we want them to know that DWD is here for them as well as the employers who hire them."

Jesús Villa, DWD Equal Rights Division Administrator
