New Federal jobless claims for early February show Wisconsin with the largest increase in the entire country - - more than big states like NY, NJ, PA and OH - - so as I wrote not long ago, Scott Walker will no doubt add the weather to his litany of finger-pointing away from three years of failed leadership, jobs promises, policies and institutions, like WEDC.
Ideologues make for flawed Governors and failed outcomes.
Here is a link to the the data, this key line and the sickly hilarious "No comment" supplied by the state by way of explanation:
State Supplied Comment
The largest increases in initial claims for the week ending February 1 were in Wisconsin (+5,041), New York (+4,830), Pennsylvania (+2,448), New Jersey (+1,853), and Ohio (+1,780), while the largest decreases were in California (-9,631), Georgia (-2,558), Indiana (-2,444), Michigan (-2,411), and Florida (-1,387).Also here are links to my weather-excuse prediction, and to one post here...
and another about Walker's habitual, responsibility-evading finger-pointing.
