Walker's push to revive Manufacturing in Wisconsin hurts Jobs effort now and in the Future.

Don't get me wrong, manufacturing is still an important element to our nations economy, but it isn't the powerhouse it once was or will every be again. The emerging new economies for energy creation can help fuel a rise in manufacturing again, but lets face it, the return of high wage unskilled labor is not about to make a comeback.

Proving my point is the chart below. Scott Walker is focused on Wisconsin's manufacturing resurgence. But if the trend continues, as demonstrated  below, we're in real trouble ten to twenty years from now. Elections do have consequences, and Walker's unfortunate time at the helm may be felt many years from now. The Great Recession changed the way the U.S. did business, and yet Republican policy makers are fighting against that shift.

Scott Walker remembers creating jobs as assemblyman in Wisconsin . It was easy with ALEC. 32000 UNION public sector jobs. It is not as easy this time with out using your tax dollars. Scott Walker has created ALL Wisconsin`s budget problems working for ALEC. In 1997 Walker and Prosser as state assemblymen championed for ALEC with truth in sentencing telling the legislatures it would not cost a dime it was to give judges not parole boards the control over sentencing. Then Walker filibustered to stop sentencing changes after the fact misleading ALL the legislatures. With out the sentencing changes Wisconsin`s prisons quadrupled over night. Most people sentenced to 2 years now had to serve as much as 6o years. It shows Wisconsin has wasted 100 billion if you add the numbers to the state budget since 1997. Not including the building new or remodeling of 71 courthouses & 71 county jails & 441 police stations and dozens of prisons 28 billion plus interest. The total is over 28 BILLION plus the 60 Billion spent by social services to support prisoners families because the bread winner was a political prisoner as US Att gen Eric Holder explained. Then farming out prisoners in several states until the courts realized it was not allowed in the Wisconsin constitution. Wisconsin then hired 32000 union public sector workers to fill the jobs housing the prisoners from deputies , judges, district attorneys all owe Walker for creating there jobs. 32000 UNION PUBLIC SECTOR JOBS. This cost taxpayers over 3.8 billion or a half million per day to house these EXTRA prisoners per day in Milwaukee county alone. Wisconsin claims it has 24,000 prisoners compared to Minnesota`s 5500. Wisconsin`s corrections population is 104,000 with many in half way house and county jails and county prisons that are not counted.
