A Janesville sign company may be regretting its decision on where to place a billboard touting the job creation efforts of Governor Scott Walker. The sign was briefly put up in front of the shuttered General Motors plant in Janesville this week, but was taken down quickly after groups started pointing out the unfortunate placement.

The GM plant closed in 2009, causing thousands of job losses in the Janesville area. The plant was shutdown well before Walker was elected governor.

The “Governor Scott Walker – Creating Jobs for Wisconsin” billboard was put up as part of a pro-Walker ad campaign being run by Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce.

WMC is of course the most powerful pro-corporate business lobby in our state who consistently cheerleads Gov. Walker’s anti-working class agenda. Fact is Walker simply isn’t creating jobs for Wisconsin.
