From Governor Walker's facebook page today:
MADISON (AP) -- New data from the U.S. Census Bureau shows the median household income fell in two-thirds of Wisconsin counties between 2009 and 2014.Lucky for the Walker Administration we do not have merit pay for politicians.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the census bureau released data Thursday that shows incomes fell by at least 10 percent in 10 counties. Vilas County saw the steepest decline at 13.3 percent.
Milwaukee County saw a 10.3 percent drop to $43.385. Dane County saw a 5.2 percent drop to $62,303. Incomes rose in two counties, Adams and Florence, and held relatively steady in 23 counties.
Wisconsin's declining incomes reflect a national trend. The country saw its median income drop by 7.5 percent to $53,482 after adjusting for inflation.
