For the sixth straight month Wisconsin has lost jobs. Since July 1, 2011, when Gov. Walker’s disastrous budget took effect, the state has continuously lost jobs. While the nation's economy gains hundreds of thousands of jobs overall, Walker's disastrous policies continue to drive Wisconsin's economy further into the ditch.
According to data released Thursday by the state Department of Workforce Development, Wisconsin lost an estimated 3,900 jobs in December. During the same period, the United States showed a gain of 212,000 jobs.
When Gov. Walker ran for office he promised to create 250,000 new jobs for the state. He is not on track to fulfill his promise and the people of Wisconsin deserve better. Last Tuesday, over 1 million signatures to recall Gov. Walker were delivered to the Government Accountability Board as the movement to recall Gov. Walker grows.
