STEVENS POINT, Wis. (WEAU) -- Governor Scott walker says small business and their owners are two of his top priorities.
He spoke to hundreds of small business owners in Stevens Point Wednesday. He discussed the growth of jobs in their market and how they can attract more qualified workers. Governor Walker says he's excited that Wisconsin has added 10,000 new employers during the past few years. He hopes the state can continue to add more businesses.
"We've seen over 11,000 new businesses here in the state over the last two, two-and-a-half years," Walker said. "That's a good sign because those are the businesses that, as they add, they go from one or two employees to four or six or seven or eight or nine or ten that are really going to help us with that job number."
Walker says he will keep supporting small business owners. He says, without them, the state could not survive.
