What Bert Has To Say About Milwaukee-Waukesha-West Allis Metro Area

Somewhat in the economic and cultural shadow of Chicago 90 miles south, Milwaukee is nevertheless a self-sufficient city, as well as a commercial and cultural center for Wisconsin and particularly its more populous southeastern portions. A melting pot for 19th-century immigrants from northern Europe, the city has kept up old-world traditions, most notably the brewing (and consumption) of beer. Following a period of industrial decline- including the brewing industry- the city has revitalized some areas, particularly downtown, and created an area of lakefront parks and museums. The business picture has changed to include more financial services and retailing companies along with the traditional base of metal products, electrical equipment, and machine tools. The area is headquarters to a surprising list of Mid-sized corporations, including Briggs & Stratton, Harley-Davidson, Allen-Bradley, Rockwell Automation and Johnson Controls, which operate plants in the vicinity, and service players like Manpower, Inc., Northwestern Mutual and retailer Kohl’s.
