Frustrated by lack of qualified candidates, business starts grow-your-own internship
from The Janesville Gazette
New business is expected to propel United Alloy to more years of record-setting revenues. But Terri Roessler, CEO of the manufacturer of diesel fuel tanks, generator frames and other heavy metal fabrications, is frustrated with her company's inability to hire qualified welders to fuel the anticipated growth. She lays some of the blame on the state education system, which she said does not put enough emphasis on technical education. Some economists counter, however, that companies such as United Alloy might need to pay more to lure the workers they need. United Alloy is trying to grow its own welders.
