I Suppose This Isn't on Scott Walker's Radar Either: Wisconsin Ranks 35th in Private-Sector Job Creation

Wisconsin adds 28,351 private-sector jobs over 12 months. (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 3/19/2014)

DWD has already put a Pollyanna spin on this.   According to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Wisconsin gained 28,351 private-sector jobs in the 12 months from September 2012 through September 2013 — a 1.2% increase that ranked the state 35th among the 50 states in the pace of job creation during that period.
