Good news, bad news in WI job numbers

There's good news and bad news for Wisconsin and Gov. Walker in the latest workforce numbers.

Let's get the bad news out of the way first: Wisconsin still trails the national rate of new jobs added.

The good news - - Wisconsin has skyrocketed (again) all the way up to 30th among the states in new jobs - - and that's the highest ranking Bucky's had since Walker became governor more than four years ago.

30th place! We've taken over the very top of the second fifth from the bottom.

A breakthrough into the top half can't be far behind.

In a similar vein, we'recommend not in last place for jobs in the Midwest since Act 10 was passed 4 years ago- we're now 6th out of 7. We passed the dysfunctional train wreck known as Illinois in the last year.

Soooo, yay?
