Department of Labor Offers Resources for Ongoing Training and Information
On March 26th, the Department of Labor, along with some other organizations, participated in WPVGA’s Business Seminar held in Stevens Point. At this seminar, the Department of Labor provided some valuable insights into state and federal programs that farmers can take advantage of to help with seasonal employment and other needs.
In an effort to “keep the conversation going,” the Department of Labor has sent some additional resources for growers to utilize, and will continue to do so down the road.
