I noticed a nasty little truth about Walker’s job creation record in the numbers reported by Wisconsin Manufacturing Extension Partnership (WEMP). Here’s the sensational headline in the WSJ:
WMEP says it helped create 355 jobs in the last year.
Here’s the first paragraph:
The Wisconsin Manufacturing Extension Partnership this week said its consulting services helped create 355 jobs and retain 654 positions in the 12 months ending June 30.
But in the last paragraph, a similar time span but a year before, tells the same story:
Last summer, WMEP reported helping to create at least 337 jobs and retain another 636 around the state in the previous year.
Under Walker, WMEP created 18 more jobs, and retained 18 more positions.
