Latest "Gold Standard" Jobs Report: Wisconsin Lost Manufacturing Jobs Over Past Year

One postive aspect of the massive dump of 27,000 emails for Team Walker was that it snowed-over yet another :  From September of 2012 to September of 2013, Wisconsin lost 659 manufacturing jobs.

This little factoid was strangely absent in the release from the Department of Workforce Development, who instead bragged that Walker has "created more manufacturing jobs in the last two years than in either of the last two Governor’s terms."  This, of course, ignores the fact that under Doyle, Wisocnsin was hit by a national recession that devastated Wisconsin's economy, including the manufacturing sector.
