Maybe it’s the paycheck, the satisfaction of a job well done or the legacy of Germanic stoicism, but regardless of what drives us, Wisconsin works and works hard.
That strong work ethic is something Corey Brumbaugh can attest to as Miron Construction’s vice president of business development. The Town of Menasha-based business prefers to recruit from Wisconsin and keep its workers on the payroll for their entire careers.
“It’s not only on a national basis. We find that northeast Wisconsin has the strongest and the best workforce in Wisconsin,” Brumbaugh said.
The efficiency of Miron’s workers keeps the company competitive. Although it means footing employee travel and lodging expenses, Brumbaugh said it’s often cheaper to use Wisconsin workers over local contractors on out-of-state projects.
“We can actually do it less expensively by sending labor from Wisconsin,” Brumbaugh said.
