Several Workforce Solutions Needed

Laramie, Wy – Wyoming's low unemployment means that there are fewer people looking for jobs. That has become a problem for both existing and new businesses that need employees. But Jerimiah Rieman with Wyoming's Department of Workforce services says solutions are not easy. For instance recruiting workers from out of state is not the answer when there is nowhere to live.
Rieman says helping develop more housing and helping businesses retain employees and two key topics. They will be among the issues that will be discussed at the Governor's conference on workforce development. It will begin May 31st in Jackson.
