Oh I know, we have WEDC chaired by Walker, but...well, that's what I mean.
The latest employment surveys show Wisconsin's unemployment rate remained at 7.1% in April but the state lost 24,100 jobs during the month, the state Department of Workforce Development said Thursday. Both numbers are adjusted to take into account the predictable ebb and flow of employment in different parts of the year.And the Walker jobs promise of 250,000? That's the number that got Walker elected, and what low information true believers bought hook, line and sinker. They still do if, you look at the the 51% approval ratings of this sociopath.
Another set of employment data released by the department Thursday, meanwhile, shows that Wisconsin added 62,072 private-sector jobs from December 2010 through December 2012. Those numbers come from a regular quarterly census of almost all employers in the state. The census provides the most comprehensive and accurate employment data available, and is much more reliable than the preliminary monthly figures.
I highlighted the word "census" because that's another target for gutting by Republicans in D.C.!!! The census would be able to take a survey once every ten years, but that's it. Nothing else. No continuing jobs numbers, no continuing agricultural census, no continuing economic census...nothing. Surprised? Another reason Republicans created the myth they know how to manage money, because more than anything, they don't.
