Gov Walkers plan works. WI add 50% of the jobs created in the US last month

Walker: Wisconsin added 9,500 jobs last month

MILWAUKEE - Gov. Scott Walker says the state added 9,500 jobs last month, accounting for more than half the jobs created nationwide in that period.

Walker told reporters today the increase in Wisconsin jobs is the largest in about eight years. He says a total of 39,300 private-sector jobs have been created since he took office in January.

The state's unemployment rate in June was 7.6 percent. It has hovered around 7.4 percent for the first five months of the year. That's typically been about 1.5 percentage points better than the national average.

Walker's news conference comes on the same day that the U.S. Labor Department released disappointing news about the economy. Applications for unemployment benefits were up last week, evidence of rising layoffs and a weak job market.

Thanks Dave,

I was gonna add the same thing, but you beat me to it.

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.
