LA CROSSE, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – A La Crosse organization is gauging how the pandemic impacted area businesses.
The La Crosse Area Development Corporation has developed a business climate survey to directly hear what businesses are struggling with.
Common issues have been work force shortages and a lack of child care options for working families.
Many different industries have already responded– all have been affected in one way or another.
Sam Bachmeier, LADCO Economic Development Coordinator said, “The impacts are felt differently from retail, to manufacturing, to health care, education and so on. The overwhelming similarity is that everybody has felt an impact, it’s just how that impact is felt differently.”
LADCO is still accepting survey responses and wants to hear from as many businesses as possible.
