Open for Business

For the Walker administration, "Wisconsin is open for business" is more than just a catch phrase. It is a driving principle for moving the state forward.

As Wisconsin's jobs ambassador, Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch travels all over the state and the country selling Wisconsin – the educated and ethical workforce, below-average workers’ compensation costs, stable legal and regulatory environment, and improving tax climate. Wisconsin has a lot to offer companies looking to grow and succeed in the 21st century global marketplace.

From her first day in office, the Lt. Governor has promoted Wisconsin to companies like Fat Wallet, which moved to Wisconsin after her phone call. In her role, she meets with economic consular officers from foreign nations, with site selectors considering whether to move here, and with small businesses looking to grow and expand in Wisconsin.

The Walker administration uses a variety of policy tools to promote job creation in Wisconsin. We’ve cut taxes by over $2 billion since taking office. We’ve cut regulatory red tape and reduced lawsuit abuse. We’ve invested in our workforce to help people get the skills they need for the jobs they want. We’re doing everything we can to underline that essential message: Wisconsin IS open for business!
