Dana is closing its Milwaukee auto parts' plant, and moving 165 jobs, including 150 good union positions, to a Kentucky plant.
Which raises, again, this question:
Why has the state media underplayed the recent Wisconsin Department of Revenue projection that Scott Walker's pledge to create 250,000 new private sector jobs by the scheduled end of his term is unattainable?
As the AP had reported:
The Department of Revenue report released Friday predicts that by 2014, the state will have added only 136,000 jobs in the private sector compared with 2010. The job growth estimate was down 43,000 from the department's previous report released in June.Does Walker get to spin away from the pledge?
