Wisconsin’s Low Unemployment Rate Hides a Stark Black-White Employment Gap.  (Wisconsin Budget Project Blog, 3/28/2018)
The rest of the story:  
Wisconsin’s unemployment rate has hit a record low and is being cited by state policymakers as evidence of Wisconsin’s strong economy. But although the unemployment rate for white workers is strikingly low, black workers in the state still face an unemployment rate higher than the rate experienced by white workers at the peak of the Great Recession.

Walker calls for ad campaign to attract workers to Wisconsin.  (Chicago Tribune, 11/29/2017)
Wisconsin's unemployment rate was 3.4 percent in October, down from a high of 9.2 percent in January 2010 as the state felt the impact of the Great Recession. Wisconsin's low unemployment, couple with an aging population, has exacerbated the problem of finding enough workers for available jobs. The state is projected to need 45,000 workers in seven years with shortages cutting across industries, including manufacturing, nursing, information technology and services.

Note how Walker neglected to mention this fact during the initial Foxconn hoopla.
