Wisconsin’s Economic Recovery Under Walker Lags Behind Country. Dead last of all the states.
And if graphs aren’t your thing, Obama is in green and Walker is in red. Wisconsin has the worst record in the nation for job growth. If you look at the jobs picture since Walker took office, Wisconsin has lost a net 14,200 jobs. In fact, Walker’s record is currently worse than Romney’s 47th out of 50 as gov of MA. While Wisconsin has lost jobs during Walker’s time in office, the country as a whole saw jobs increase by 1.8 percent. Needless to say, Wisconsin is not on track for Walker to keep his campaign promise to bring the state 250,000 new jobs by 2015. As the Greater Wisconsin Political Fund correctly pointed out in a recent ad, in 2011, “Wisconsin lost more jobs than any other state. Dead last.”
