Taking into account the latest jobs report from the Department of Workforce Development, Wisconsin has added only 8,800 jobs this year and only 102,195 jobs since Scott Walker took office. This paltry number is just 40% of Scott Walker's pledge.
Wisconsin Politifact is now rating Walker's pledge as a "PROMISE BROKEN."
According to the Center on Wisconsin Strategy at the University of Wisconsin, Wisconsin still needs to create roughly 130,000 jobs to get back to where we were before the recession and that doesn't even take into account the 108,500 additional jobs Wisconsin needs to accommodate population growth since 2007. Simply put, unemployment is far too high and the economy is just not recovering fast enough under Scott Walker's administration.
Wisconsin is ready for new leadership in Madison. Wisconsin is ready to create good jobs and economic opportunity for workers. Wisconsin is ready for Mary Burke.
