Governor Walker’s Wisconsin Lost 3,900 Private-Sector Jobs In December, Nation Added Jobs That Month

January 19, 2012

Instead of bashing workers and unions it is now apparent to all that Governor Scott Walker should have spent his time in more constructive pursuits during the past year.  That became very clear today when it was announced Wisconsin lost another 3,900 private-sector jobs in December.

According to data released Thursday by the state Department of Workforce Development, the state lost an estimated 3,900 jobs in the private sector in December from November. The United States showed a gain of 212,000 for the month, outstripping expectations of most economists.

Both sets of data are seasonally adjusted to strip out recurring fluctuations due to weather and holidays. Both sets of data are also preliminary and subject to revision.

Most of the jobs were lost in service sector industries as well as hotels, restaurants, leisure and hospitality.

    I guess you missed that the MEAURE WALKER PROMISED was 250,000 new private sector jobs, not a particular unemployment rate. (at this rate he’s only about 50,000 jobs short) I guess you missed that in early summer when there was a gain in jobs Walker was crowing about that is a sign his policies are working and he made the announcement hisself, now the announcements of losses are made by the bureaucracy, mostly on Friday afternoons after new deadlines have passed, and his Stepford Wife Lt. Governor blames the losses on national conditions.

    Am I missing something here? The headline of the document is: “WISCONSIN DECEMBER UNEMPLOYMENT RATE DROPS TO 7.1 PERCENT”
