Unemployment Increases in Walker’s Wisconsin

Share

Nobody believed the GOP last week as they tried to tell us the Walker Administration created half of all jobs created in the U.S., even as unemployment increased in our state.

The Appleton Post-Crescent got to the bottom of Walker and the Senate GOP’s hoodwink and editorialized against them misleading Wisconsin on the jobs numbers. That’s not stopping “VP of Marketing” Rebecca Kleefisch, as she continues to distort the truth this week in a column titled, “State’s economy killing the competition”.

But, Capital Times columnist John Nichols points out the numbers actually aren’t so rosy:

Under Gov. Scott Walker’€™s ‘€œleadership,’€ unemployment is increasing in Wisconsin at twice the rate it is nationally.

As we learn about a GE operation in Waukesha moving to China and Wausau Paper struggling to make ends meet, we should reassure ourselves that selling out the middle-class for corporate tax breaks never ever ever works.
