Next he'll import third-world labor, and employment will by 100%, once Americans have been forced to evacuate the state altogether.

You're against importing third-world labor? Racist!

Don't worry - be happy - kochs' toady will be gone soon

MADISON — Wisconsin lost 12,500 jobs last year, ranking it tops among all states in lost jobs, according to revised numbers released Tuesday by the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics. The numbers reflect non-farm jobs measured in January 2011 and this January. Just five other states registered an overall job loss in the period, with Wisconsin's losses far outflanking everyone else. Missouri was next at 4,100 jobs lost.

now compare the increase in gov subsidies before you start tooting your horn.. they dont count the ones that unemployment has run out.. that only means that the other 5% have not found a job in over 3 years and now lives on food stamps and hud.. or lives in the street .. check those increases before you start applauding

Wisconsin's median income plummets, census figures show Great Recession continues to take money out of pockets of state residents

All those Wisconsin workers who feel like they've been economically squeezed in the first decade of the 21st century: It's not your imagination. It's reality.

The rate of decline in Wisconsin dwarfed the national drop of 8.9% in median household income over the same period.

Last year, median household income in the state was $49,001, down from $49,993 in 2009.

Families have weathered cuts in pay, pensions and benefits - and there's little hope of them being restored. Their health care deductibles have risen along with everything from food and utilities to college tuition. Money they might have squirreled away for retirement or their children's college funds gets redirected to day-to-day living.

Yes you are right. Wisconson is a veritable utopia under the Walker admistration. When I graduate college I plan on moving to this republican utopia. It will be great to be ruled by the dear leader. That is if he isnt recalled which it looks like he very well may be and if he isnt in jail for embezzelment.

try and tell me how Walker created jobs?

Keep in mind that the government can't actually create jobs without creating government jobs or funding projects that pay private companies.

Unemployment is down nationwide, does that mean that Obama is an economic genius? No, he & Walker are just benefiting from the govt goosing up with economy by pumping out the money. Fear, because it will again crash soon. Just like it did for FDR in '37.

Well you might have a point if Wiskys ststs were equal but they are lower than the national average, and significantly lower.

I KNEW the douches on this board would do calisthenics trying ANYTHING to disprove honest facts.

Hilarious!

[-] 1 points by darrenlobo (204) 2 years ago

Don't get confused here I'm not a leftist but a libertarian. If anything Walker hasn't cut spending & taxes enough. Things would be even better in WI if he had. He taxes & spends like a Democrat, there's no difference between Ds & Rs.

Rocks??

Only in his head.

You have very low expectations on rockin'.

Go Gov Walker, you the man. Get rid of some of the stinkin unions in other States and the economy will improve there to. Yeee hah

[-] 3 points by JesseHeffran (3903) 2 years ago

yeah, only if you are a non working, lazy stock holder will the economy be bangin' with no unions. But who cares about them, the stock holders? In my opinion, It is time they learned what real work is.

[-] -2 points by beenthereonce (-13) 2 years ago

you got that backwards and the average union worker is the lazy one and that is just how unions like em

[-] 3 points by JesseHeffran (3903) 2 years ago

I believe unions are to the private sector what the separation of powers are to our form of government, a check on abuses. Maybe instead of trying to use government to destroy your competition, a unionized workforce, you could be a real american and compete with them. You know it is not cool to use gov't to destroy competition. If you want better employees for your endeavours, then maybe you should man up, and pay your employees more than union shops do. But no, you would rather use government to destroy your competitors. You are such a corporatist.

[-] 2 points by shooz (26733) 2 years ago

Really?

Just where is it you actually work? What is it you actually do?

[-] -2 points by beenthereonce (-13) 2 years ago

I worked for a union shop for around 15 years and now am self employed. Public unions are bankrupting States and private unions are driving the business's overseas. The big three is a good example and years ago they used to put out a decent product. Today as the unions become more corrupt now the big three is producing junk and it is mainly due to the unions constantly demanding higher wages and benefits. The average autoworkers today are lazy asses and are protected by the union.

[-] 1 points by shooz (26733) 2 years ago

Do you always lie this much?

[-] -1 points by beenthereonce (-13) 2 years ago

Out of the big three Ford is the worst

[-] 1 points by shooz (26733) 2 years ago

Why yes, of course you do.

The pertinent question is why do you come here to lie?

[-] -1 points by GumbyDamnit (36) 2 years ago

Government workers holding UNION jobs, paid for by the tax payers, are inherently bad and fraudulent because those paying their salaries have no actual and direct say in the bargaining processes.

It is wrong when government employees are paid far above private sector employees. Everyone cannot all work for the government.

[-] 0 points by Bonobobastic (8) 2 years ago

Except that the taxpayers DO have a say in the bargaining process, they freely elect state senators, representatives, and governors to bargain on their behalf. If they don't think the bargaining methods of those representatives are useful, then it is their civic duty to vote for someone who will be more attentive to the demands of their constituents.

[-] 1 points by aflockofdoofi (-18) 2 years ago

Another dolt who doesnt get it. Public employees can vote for their own bosses. So I can vote for someone to get fiscally responsible, and a prison guard and the entire guard union is voting for higher taxes and more spending on, ta daa, prisons.

Now you get it? Who was the largest supporter of Californias 3 strikes law? The prison guard union.

[-] 1 points by shooz (26733) 2 years ago

You have a whole lot of prison guards in California. It's what, like 88% of the State?

[-] -1 points by GumbyDamnit (36) 2 years ago

Sure, just like they have a say in TARP, bailouts, NDAA2012, citizens united.... etc etc etc. That works well for everyone and I'm so happy your satiated with it.

Unhappy when you get screwed? Vote in a new screwjob in a few years! Undo any damages previously done? Seldom and if so, it takes far too much time.

bottom line, those who are voted in vote like money wants them to vote, what's best in the interest of the masses be damned

you know that

[-] -1 points by beenthereonce (-13) 2 years ago

In the federal and public unions both there is a lot of fraud but these OWS loons cannot see or are denying this

Wow, intelligent thought. Nice post.
