Wisconsin Continues to Hemorrhage Private Jobs
The DWD released the March job figures at noon today and Wisconsin lost another 4,300 private sector jobs since last month. Since January 2011, when the governor took office, the total number of private sector jobs has risen by only 800 jobs. Thus, after 14 months, the governor has met three-tenths of one percent of his promise to create 250,000 new private sector jobs in his first four year term.
And what has been the performance on creation of all private and public sector jobs overall? Wisconsin has lost 14,200 total jobs since January 2011.
