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.
I suppose this isn't on Scott Walker's radar either: Wisconsin ranks 35th in job creation. (3/20/2014)
