A survey by Manpower took a statewide look at the percentage of companies looking to hire and fire.

Almost 60 percent of Wausau businesses say they're looking to increase their staffs, with none reporting any layoffs.

That compared to the state average of 33 percent of businesses increasing staffing levels, and seven percent decreasing.

In the Fox Cities, 40 percent say they'll hire, seven percent will fire, and in Oshkosh, 27 percent are hiring, seven percent firing.
