    “Tapping Into the Power of Labor Market Information” will cover how employers can use industry employment trends, occupational wage rates and worker demographics to make better informed business decisions.

    “Our Labor Market Information Center produces valuable data that can help business, economic development and education leaders,” said state Labor and Regulation Secretary Marcia Hultman. “I hope our customers will better understand what is available and how to use it.”
