WMC's Latest Employer Survey

A new survey of Wisconsin businesses revealed increased economic uncertainty at the start of 2023, with a majority saying a recession is looming. According to the Wisconsin Employer Survey, 60 percent of businesses believe the Wisconsin economy will enter a recession this year.

According to the survey, the uncertainty about the economy has reinforced a pessimistic outlook. In the last four surveys, the number of businesses projecting the Wisconsin economy to grow has dropped from 84 percent in Summer 2021 to just 42 percent today. In fact, the projection for the national economy is even worse. Only one quarter of those surveyed anticipate U.S. economic growth over the next six months.
