OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin’s economic and job training institutions will get an extra $15 million to help train workers for available jobs in the Badger State.

Governor Scott Walker approved the funding Wednesday, when he signed a bill to provide matching grants for the job training groups.

The bill passed the Senate unanimously, and the Assembly by a vote of 94-4.

It also allocates $5 million for a new state computer system to keep track of available jobs, to help officials keep up with what employers need.

Walker calls it a, “concerted effort to connect workers with jobs.”
