Trailing since mid 2011, shortly after Gov. Walker took office and passed his first budget, job creation in Wisconsin has been abysmal.
In countless reports, both quarterly and annually, Wisconsin continues to lag behind the region and the nation in job creation. A new jobs report, considered the most comprehensive available, released today, shows that Wisconsin is not open for business or job creation under Gov. Walker’s administration.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports:
Wisconsin gained 37,166 private-sector jobs in the 12 months from March 2015 through March 2016, a 1.58% increase that ranks the state 33rd among the 50 states in the pace of job creation during that period.
