Job Growth In WI Stalling, Fresh Data Show

WEDC says we're "on track," but new federal data show state job-growth lagging:

Wisconsin gained 24,124 private-sector jobs in the 12 months between March 2012 and March 2013, according to data released Thursday by the state Department of Workforce Development.... 
However, compared to the prior 12-month period for Wisconsin, from December 2012 to December 2013, private-sector job creation slowed from 32,282. "The momentum looks to be slowing, not continuing," said Brian Jacobsen, chief investment strategist at Wells Fargo Funds Management in Menomonee Falls.
