Walker has kept WIS in an employment RECESSION!

7/17/2014  - Wisconsin loses 1,200 private-sector jobs in June, estimates show

3/8/2013 No matter how you spin job numbers, Wisconsin near bottom compared to other states

Jan 2013 - Walker brings Wisconsin job growth at 38th worst state.

Jobs data now official: Wisconsin gains but lags behind most states 


Walker loses jobs and lowers unemployment by discouraging people!

JSOnline 4.24.12 State posts largest percentage job loss in U.S. over past year, report shows

From March 2011 to March 2012, Wisconsin lost 23,900 jobs. That was the largest decrease in percentage terms in the country.

Those job losses came from both the public and private sector, but the public sector job losses (17,800) were larger than the private-sector job losses (6,100).

Bureau of Labor Statistics

Over the year, nonfarm employment increased in 45 states and the District of Columbia, decreased in 4 states, and was unchanged in Alabama.

The largest over-the-year percentage increase occurred in North Dakota (+6.5 percent).

The largest over-the-year percentage decrease in employment occurred in Wisconsin (-0.9 percent).

With changes like these you almost have to interpret it as stemming from Walker policies/budget and influence to constrain local governments by reducing revenue sharing.
Some tweeted me about declining unemployment rates ...  suggesting things were better ... they may be?!

When the unemployment rate goes down however it may indicate fewer are being reported or counted simply because they are discouraged and not looking for a job.  This also explains when things improve why the unemployment rate can go up.  Looking at job gains or losses ... those jobs gained or lost can be tricky too since not all jobs are the same!
