For Scott Walker and his Jobs Promotion Message, It's Deja Vu All Over Again

One year later......

Wisconsin ninth among 10 Midwestern states in job growth under Walker. (Capital Times, 3/20/2014)

Not the kind of news you want to brag about.   According to the CEW, Wisconsin was trailing all neighboring states in job growth except for Illinois, which saw a 0.7 percent increase in jobs over the period. 

In terms of just private sector jobs, Wisconsin added 28,351 for the one-year period, a gain of 1.2 percent vs. 2.0 for the nation as a whole. That ranked the state 35th.

Rallying the team, the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development is already in furious spin mode.

Actually, I thought it was against the law to campaign on state time.
