Job Growth Graph Doesn't Lie: Wisconsin Going in the Wrong Direction Under Walker

 

In addition, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Wisconsin dropped to 45th in the country during Walker's first year in office in job growth-- a drop from 36th the year before.  (Ranking of states on percent change in employment, December 2010 to 2011,  Employees on nonfarm payrolls by state and selected industry sector, not seasonally adjusted.)

It also should be pointed out that a big reason we have a budget deficit is (mostly) because Walker's jobs numbers are so bad that even the Department of Revenue's conservative projections didn't take into account job growth taking a nose dive under Walker.

But, even though the numbers can't and don't lie, Walker can and does lie and continues to spread his "its working" nonsense.  I suppose he has to:  In this case, the only thing worse than lying about his jobs record is telling the truth about his jobs record.
