Well played, Scott Walker: Perhaps a presidential run on this record?
In its article, "How did states create jobs?" Pew's Stateline news service presents a graphic showing Wisconsin leading the nation in job losses over the past 12 months — one of only three states with that dubious distinction.
The graphic shows Wisconsin with 6,800 fewer total non-farm jobs in April 2013 compared to April 2012. Wyoming and Maine also lost jobs over the period, each down by 1,500 jobs.
By comparison, all of Wisconsin’s neighbors added jobs over the period, according to cited figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
