    GOOD JOB GOV Hate labor Walker....your doing a great job for Wisconsins Rich and Corporations WHO YOU GAVE TAX CUTS with the money you took off of PUBLIC WORKERS.....I just love the teaparty...


    PolitiFact N.J.: With Christie to campaign for Walker, a state senator claimed Wisconsin led nation in job losses | NJ.com
    Question for ya. What were the jobs that were lost? I get that most of them were public jobs...but which ones? Were they from needed sectors like police, firemen, teachers? Also were they lay offs? Fired due to bad performance? Quit?

    Just saying that those jobs were lost is meaningless without context.

    Really? The chart doesn't show that, you really should call BLS and tell them their data is wrong because there was no job losses in Wisconsin according to BLS

    The largest over-the-month decrease in employment occurred in Ohio (-9,500), followed by New Jersey (-8,600) and Wisconsin (-4,500)....

    Over the year, nonfarm employment increased in 45 states and the District of Columbia, decreased in 4 states, and was unchanged in Alabama. The largest over-the-year percentage increase occurred in North
    Dakota (+6.5 percent). The largest over-the-year percentage decrease in employment occurred in Wisconsin (-0.9 percent).

    Over the year, 27 states and the district experienced statistically significant increases in employment. The largest increase occurred in Texas (+245,700), followed by California (+181,000) and New York
    (+155,300). Wisconsin was the only state to show a statistically significant decrease (-23,900). (See table D.)

    He's a public union retiree. I think he's still on their email list, and he just posts whatever he gets in the forum.

    You do realize that month over month in this report compares March to February and not in total where Wisconsin has a job increase. Wonder what effect the recall efforts are having on businesses moving to the state and hiring people? Why would anyone invest their money in Wisconsin to increase employment not knowing if Scott Walker and his programs are going to continue in place?

    Walker's term has effectively been during a national "recovery".

    So all states are showing the economic recovery we are seeing in Wisconsin including budget being balanced, drops in unemployment, and better economic growth?

    In other words, "Ignore the reality that state and local governments have failed to maintain ANY fiscal responsibility and protect unions at all cost". Shhhhhhhhhhhhhocking.

Liberals always want to be procise when it comes to Republican results but ignore the Obama lies and distortions. Wonder why?
    You have to keep in mind that "Gimmesometruth" is a proven liar and he's always known for spouting lies and/or false facts on other threads.
    Gimmesometruth has convinced himself that Obama is the 2nd coming of the Mesiah and Obama is flawless and Gov Walker is Satan because he stood up to Union thugery.

    Here's a realization for you....

    Over the year, nonfarm employment increased in 45 states and the District of Columbia, decreased in 4 states, and was unchanged in Alabama. The largest over-the-year percentage increase occurred in North Dakota (+6.5 percent). The largest over-the-year percentage decrease in employment occurred in Wisconsin (-0.9 percent).

    Over the year, 27 states and the district experienced statistically significant increases in employment. The largest increase occurred in Texas (+245,700), followed by California (+181,000) and New York....<snip>.....Wisconsin was the only state to show a statistically significant decrease (-23,900). (See table D.)....

    I'm guessing a lot of people moved to N. Dakota to work in the oil fields since they had the largest employment increase of +6.5%.
