Wisconsin's Jobs Deficit

Wisconsin Job Watch.   (COWS:  Center on Wisconsin Strategy, 9/25/2013)

Excerpt: Wisconsin’s job deficit now stands at almost 152,900. Nearly six years after the recession began, and four years into the recovery, Wisconsin still has fewer jobs – 59,900 fewer jobs -- than in 2007 (before the Great Recession). Wisconsin’s population has grown since then. Just to keep up with that growth, Wisconsin needs to add another 92,970 jobs. These two numbers together – 152,870 – account for the current Wisconsin Job Deficit.
