The Blue and the Gold: Wisconsin's Jobs Deficit

Painfully Slow:  Wisconsin's Recovery Weaker Than Even National Recovery.

For many Americans, the impact of the Great Recession lingers.    The 2007 recession, the Great Recession, is now six years behind us. But the aftermath is still painfully evident throughout the nation. For those still struggling to find a decent job, for those who can’t secure the hours they need to make ends meet, for those who have watched their resources and meager unemployment benefits run out, the Great Recession has never really ended. On paper, and as proclaimed by the committee of experts who decide this, the recovery began nearly four years ago. But it is such an anemic and jobless affair that while market and balance sheets have improved, too few jobs have been added.
