Job Center of Wisconsin Returns to Antigo
FOR ANTIGO TIMES
Addressing a common community need for labor pool improvement was one of the goals that were identified at the 2018 Langlade County Economic Development Summit and the priority was made to get the Job Center of Wisconsin to return to Antigo. We are happy to say that goal has been met!
