Scholarly Scoop - October 12th at 10:00 a.m. A Demographic Deficit: The Politics of Nationalism and the Need for More (not less) Immigration in Wisconsin
A falling birth rate and domestic outmigration have resulted in a slow-growing, aging population in Wisconsin over the last several decades. Meanwhile, a tight labor market has left employers clamoring for more workers. Universities have felt the pinch too. With undergraduate enrollment dropping, many of the state's universities have struggled to make ends meet. Yet, state leaders have done little to attract immigrants and incorporate them in the labor force. The politics of nationalism are working at cross-purposes with economic growth, and we all suffer the consequences.
