Job center officials in Sheboygan and Manitowoc counties say they continue to see evidence of an improving labor market, with local manufacturers driving much of the hiring. While manufacturers continue to lament the shortage in workers to fill skilled labor positions, job center officials say there has been a strong uptick in hiring for general labor positions requiring minimal training.
Sheboygan's unemployment rate fell to 8 percent in April, down from 8.9 percent the month before, according to figures released Wednesday from the state Department of Workforce Development.
