Store Closures/ Retail Layoffs

The recent closures of numerous retail outlets and other stores in southwest Wisconsin has left a lot of people without jobs and many of those people lack the necessary skills to find employment elsewhere. In an effort to assist those workers, the Southwest Wisconsin Workforce Development Board has created the “Dislocated Retail Worker Program. SWWDB CEO Rhonda Suda says the program is for people who have been laid off from a retail store, a retail company’s corporate office, distribution center or call center. The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development recently awarded a grant to the board to establish the program. To apply for the program, Suda says you need to stop by their office in Fennimore or at the Rock County Job Center in Janesville.
