A modest jobs proposal

Prompted by this story:

About 64 jobs at U.S. Bank in downtown Milwaukee will be eliminated under a restructuring plan this spring, the bank has told state officials.

U.S. Bank informed the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development this week that the job cuts are scheduled to begin on or about April 1.

Republicans are anxious to give businesses $1,000 for every new job they create. Well and good, but how about charging them $1,000 for every job they eliminate?

If that had been in place the last couple of years, we might not even have a deficit.
