    Here is the data on Wisconsin, In January 2011 Wisconsin had 2.833 million employed and in March 2012 there were 2.856 employed. That doesn't look like a job loss to me.

    You did not cite the BLS in regard to the decrease in unemployment, and I doubt that the BLS knows more about the state numbers that the WI Department of Workforce Development.

    That does not show the rate of change. You see, you get yourself so involved that you just can't keep track of the conversations.

    Try again.

    What it shows is job gains and unemployment reductions which is contrary to your post and comments. Learn to read the BLS data and then get back to us.

    Yes it does. In the very last chart it gives numbers of the labor force, employed, and unemployed and the unemployment percentage.

    The last time that unemployment was lower than the 6.8% for March of this year was back in December of 2008 at 6.5%. January of 2009 was at 7.2%. When Walker got in office unemployment was at 7.7%. From this we can see that the rate dropped from 7.7% to 6.8%. That is a 0.9% drop in unemployment since Walker took office.

    Yup. I was waiting for con to get the number that I had posted 3 pages ago, seasonally adjusted, straight from WI. Again, it is in line with the national average, showing the executives of WI and the US getting the same results.

    And I am waiting for you to explain the charts and actual data shown from BLS which you seem to buy when you believe it supports your point of view but not now? I am also waiting for an explanation as to why the 17 spot jub in business climate change in Wisconsin as reported by Chief Executive Magazine and then how the recall is affecting job growth in Wisconsin? You pick and choose data that you believe makes your case but ignore the non partisan BLS data which comes from the Wisconsin Work Force Commission.

    In addition Wisconsin has improved economically due to Walker policies but what the hell, improving economy with a Republican Governor is bad for the unions, bad for Democrats, and of course bad for Obama.
