So much for Gov. Scott Walkers (R) stewardship of the Wisconsin economy and his promise that eliminating collective bargaining rights for public employees and massive budget cuts would turn the Badger State into a job growth miracle.
A report today from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) shows that Wisconsin is the only state in the nation to suffer statistically significant job loss during the 12 months from March 2011 to March 2012. In other words, while the rest of the nation is at least holding its own or seeing improvement in job growth, Walkers Wisconsin experiment is a miserable failure.
During the period, Wisconsin lost 23,900 jobs. That was the largest decrease in percentage terms in the country. The public-sector job losses (17,800) were far larger than the private-sector job losses (6,100).
Voters will certainly keep this in mind when they go to the polls in Walkers upcoming recall election.
The BLS report can be found here. Also click here to check out this report from the Economic Policy Institute and here for a more detailed look at Walkers economic record.
I don’t think there is a bigger bunch of whining crybabies in America than the commie union thugs. Get over it freeloaders! Get a job!
Good news! Thanks, Governor!
17000 fewer fleas on the dog. A good start.
I hope EVERY AFL-CIO Communist UNION THUG loses their job! May this turd union rot in HELL!
Oh, I don’t know....I think the unions have a challenger in a certain melanin tinted people....
Consider the source of the numbers. We used to call this a MAO study: Made As Ordered.
Wisconsin AFL CIO Jobs Report ping
FReep Mail me if you want on,, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
Yes, but the public-sector job losses are good, right?
There are way too many bureaucrats in the “public-sector”.
Time for public-sector jobs to be a culling of the herd.
I’ve seen hundreds of these human union pigs in MI.
Poor ol’ Mike is about 5’9”. He weighs about 270 lbs. He has a daily seat at the local bar that he warms from 7am til 5pm until his poor momma comes to pick him up and introduce him to his kids.
Mike will be dead from heart disease or diabetes via alcoholism before he hits 50, unless he tries to pick up another man’s wife. Then he’s dead by .45 cal at age 47.
That’s because “they” is the AFL-CIO, to them it is a bad thing. This is like a mob putting out a press release condemning the arrest of a great number of crooks.
It’s not a job loss when we chase a few pigs away from the government’s trough - it’s an accomplishment! Go Scott! Send him something NOW https://donate.scottwalker.org/s/?gclid=CLC5t__8z68CFSERNAodegtWHg
Unions = EARTH WHORES on meth.
