Data released for June showed Wisconsin losing another 11,700 private sector jobs, along with more than a thousand public sector jobs, too.
So how far behind is Walker on that infamous 250,000-new-private-sector-jobs-pledge that he threw out repeatedly during the 2010 campaign - - his website's posting, here - - and repeated in his recall bid?
Here's how CBS News calculates it:
Based on the monthly estimates for 2012 and more accurate data from 2011, Wisconsin has added 45,315 jobs since Walker took office. With that pace, 120,804 jobs will be created by 2015, less than half what Walker promised.And this is not the first time number-crunchers found Walker would fall short of his promise.
Here's what his Revenue Department said last October:
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.
