Survey: hiring to increase this spring

MILWAUKEE (WSAU-WheelerNews)  If you're looking for a job, your chances of finding one in Wisconsin could improve greatly over the next three months. A quarterly survey by Milwaukee's Manpower Incorporated shows that 21-percent more companies plan to add employees from April through June than those expecting layoffs. Manpower calls that difference the "net employment outlook," and Wisconsin is the nation's fourth-highest.

North Dakota has the highest net improvement at 25-percent, followed by Alaska and Utah.

In Metro Milwaukee, the Manpower survey calls for a 22-percent net employment outlook. 27-percent of Milwaukee area firms plan to add workers this spring, while 5-percent expect layoffs. 66-percent expect no changes, and 2-percent are undecided. Chris Layden of Manpower says companies are getting more comfortable operating in quote, "an environmental of global uncertainty."

Nationally, Manpower says 13-percent more companies plan to add workers than to lay-off people from April through June. If the predictions hold true, Wisconsin could see a real turnaround in its job growth. Federal figures show that the Badger State has created new jobs at only half the national pace in the government's latest quarterly employment census.
