Wisconsin Workforce Development Secretary Robert Gassman agrees with Obama Administration officials that’s it’s going to take quite a while for unemployment numbers to drop.

Gassman says there are some encouraging economic signs, but it may be the end of 2010 before the unemployment numbers start coming down.

The latest figures put Wisconsin’s unemployment rate at 9.2-percent, the highest it’s been in more than 25 years.
