When 1,000 good-paying, family-supporting Oscar Mayer jobs were revealed as lost to Madison, Walker got around to displaying his know-nothing face and finger-pointing do-nothing response:
The GOP governor said the closing was a corporate decision that had "nothing to do with Wisconsin"...
[Madison Mayor Paul] Soglin said Madison officials met with the company after the first wave of job cuts [in August] and made clear the city would do what it could to help. The state had not done anything he was aware of, Soglin said.Walker & Co. sat on their hands when Oscar Mayer was signaling it's departure this summer, but when when the jobs news was better a few weeks ago in another city - - the Amazon opened a distribution facility in Kenosha - - Walker pulled out all the stops and touted Wisconsin's virtues and positive state actions in a 'look-what-I did' job-creating victory lap, because as his office said:
"Governor Walker’s top priority is working hard for the people of Wisconsin to ensure everyone has access to good-paying, family-supporting jobs."
