17,200 additional jobs in Wisconsin since January 1, 233,800 to go for the Governor

This chart showing the current figures for number of jobs added to the Wisconsin labormarket since January 1.  The total in Quarter 1 of 2011 is 17,200 jobs added.  At that pace, Governor Walker might be expected to meet his campaign promise of 250,000 new jobs by the end of his new term.  However, if he adds the additional 232,800 jobs, the employed work force will total 3,068,000.  In the last ten years, the employed work force figure has never gone above 2,950,000.
