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.
