The numbers are in, and hey, Scott Walker saw jobs increase in Wisconsin, but fewer of them than in his first year. "It's working?" may be his new slogan.
jsonline: Wisconsin gained 24,124 private-sector jobs in the 12 months between March 2012 and March 2013, according to data released Thursday by the state Department of Workforce Development … based on a set of employment data considered to be the most reliable.
However, compared to the prior 12-month period for Wisconsin, from December 2011 to December 2012, private-sector job creation slowed from 32,282. "The momentum looks to be slowing, not continuing," said Brian Jacobsen, chief investment strategist at Wells Fargo Funds Management in Menomonee Falls.
