Consistent with federal legislation, Wisconsin Public Labor Exchange Services are provided by Job Service staff. Most are based in local Job Centers throughout Wisconsin. The field structure is linked and supported by a network of internet-based public electronic labor exchange technologies that aid staff in their provision of information brokering services as well as the traditional office structure. As a result, services are readily available to employers at their place of business and to jobseekers wherever they can access the Internet.
