SPRINGFIELD, IL (WTAQ) - Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker told an Illinois business conference today that quote, “like a rocket, you’ll see businesses hiring” after the June fifth recall election – which he predicted he would win.
The Journal Sentinel quoted data released by his own state statisticians last week:
Job creation in Wisconsin slowed markedly between July and September, according to the most recent available government data deemed credible by economists.
According to a report Friday from the state Department of Workforce Development, the state added 20,481 private-sector jobs in the 12-months that ended September - with most of the weakness in the final three months of that period.
