John Mielke, the president of Associated Builders and Contractors in Wisconsin, joins the RightWisconsin Conversations podcast this week. Mielke and RightWisconsin Editor James Wigderson discuss a bill waiting on action by the state Senate that would allow companies to have a one-to-one ratio of apprentices to journeymen in the skilled trades, a bill that will help (but not fix) the skills gap.

Mielke and Wigderson also discuss what ABC-WI does for its members, how did Mielke become a trade association president, and the other issues that are important to Mielke’s organization. They also discuss Foxconn and Wisconsin’s economy.
