Throughout this pandemic, Upper Peninsula Michigan Works! (UPMW) has pivoted to meet the needs of the communities we serve. We’ve also taken it upon ourselves to educate our region to the best of our ability. During these turbulent times, having sound, positive information can make a difference for job seekers, students, and employers.

That is why we participated in three separate interviews with local news outlets: The Daily Press, TV 6, and WJMN.

In these interviews, UPMW staff members talked about our response to the pandemic, the Michigan Unemployment system, and more. To view each of the aforementioned interviews, please click on the links below:
