There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Region Information

The seven-county Southeastern Wisconsin region, including Milwaukee and Kenosha, accounts for nearly one-third of the state's residents and jobs. This area has traditionally relied on the steadily receding manufacturing industry as the backbone of its economy. Southeastern Wisconsin's economic transformation focuses on developing and retaining workers with specialized skills. Through a partnership with the regional 21st Century Learning Initiative, an effort is underway to change the K-12 system into a seamless proficiency-based K-16 system. The initiative incorporates the use of 21st century education and applied technology to achieve educational innovation. Another educational component of the region's transformation strategy includes a focus on youth STEM skills initiatives.

As a Second Generation WIRED region, Southeastern Wisconsin will continue to focus its efforts on creating jobs and empowering its workforce.
