The Walker Agenda Is Still Working! Part CLXXV

As Scott Walker is in China to sell off our assets for a few yuans in campaign contributions, he is still driving off our jobs as well:
Wisconsin lost 8,500 jobs in March, and the state’s seasonally adjusted unemployment remained at 7.1 percent, according to the latest report released today by the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development (DWD).

The DWD cited U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics seasonally adjusted numbers that indicated Wisconsin lost 7,400 government jobs in March, including 3,600 state government jobs, 3,200 local government jobs and 600 federal government jobs.
Wisconsin also lost 1,100 private sector jobs in March, according to the report.
The state’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for February was revised down to 7.1 percent from the preliminary estimate of 7.2 percent.
Or, in MacIver math, Wisconsin added another 30,000 jobs and will meet and beat his goal of 250,000 jobs by Tuesday.

Out of curiosity, has anyone looked into how much it would cost for the Chinese to just keep him over there? It'll probably be expensive since they are already experiencing the Walker effect on their own economy. But no matter the cost, I bet we could raise it in no time flat.


  1. Austerity is a bitch. Why are Republicans copying Europe's economic strategies when right wing media always point their fingers at how Europe's economic strategies do not work?

  2. Walker is opening a Wisconsin office in China. The one job he does create isn't in our state.
