No pain, no gain!

Like it says, most of those jobs were government jobs. Big win for the folks that actually pay taxes in the state that don't work for the state. Look on the brightside, Wi finances are in much better shape than pre-Walker.

A side note.

Most of those Government jobs that were lost were in Madison, Kensha, Racine, Janeville and Milwaukee.
What do they have in common?

They all renewed DA UNION's contracts and did NOT use Walkers ACT 10 tools.


But hey, minor detail.:D

Walker has saved the state of WI taxpayers over $1-BILLION, I notice Matt ommitted that little atatistic.
Also unemployment in WI is below 7%, another ommitted annoying fact!

Let's see what happens in June.
DA UNION backed Kathleen Falk 100%.
She is trailing in her own primary by over 10 points.
The hand chosen union candidate can't even win her own party!!

The guy kicking her behind?
Mayor Barret of Milwaukee who has cut and slashed firefighter and police union members jobs, pay and benefits.
He also used Walkers fix's to save Milwaukee over $26 million.:D

But again, minor details.....right Matt??;-)

Rk, maybe that unemployment rate has dropped because those individuals previously receiving unemployment have exhausted their benefits not found a job. But of course that can't be...

Awesome cut the firefighters and policeman's benefits and pay, no need to keep good people in those positions...

That's what Mayor Barrett did in Milwaukee, your party's candidate to run against Walker.

On a much more important front, how is your pup doing?

I've never been unemployed since I was 16 (now 32) so I'm not sure how the entire process works but how many weeks of unemployement does one receive before they exhaust their benefits?? I know they kept extending these benefits recently however.

99 weeks and they have tried to extend that period by several months but the Damn Republicans blocked them.:rolleyes:

Looking forward to some nicer weather.

FWIW, here's an opportunity for us conservatives not living in Wisconsin but believe in what Scott Walker has done and is doing to help keep him in office. More importantly, an opportunity to fight against the unionistas that are in the process of bullying that states non-union believers.

Dear William,



A leaked memo reveals Wisconsin Democrats' and Big Labor's battle plan for the June 5 recall election. Their campaign strategy: Don't talk about Wisconsin's government-sector Right to Work law.



One Democrat even admitted that the issue "isn't moving people" to their side.



There's a simple reason for that.



Right to Work is popular with the people of Wisconsin and Governor Walker's reforms are paying off.



And now the union bosses are desperate to talk about anything else. But your National Right to Work Committee won't let them get away with sweeping the issue under the rug.



We're prepared to put Right to Work front and center in the recall campaign, but we need your help.



The action of concerned citizens like you has repeatedly paid off in this lengthy battle.



Over a year ago, your support helped encourage Governor Walker and the legislature to stay the course and pass the bill over the outrageous protests, teacher union "sick outs," and a Democrat legislative walkout.



Your Committee alerted and mobilized Wisconsin citizens when Big Labor tried to hijack an election for the State Supreme Court, and later when they tried to restore a pro-forced unionism majority in the State Senate.



Despite a $20 million campaign to recall supporters of the government-sector Right to Work law last summer, Big Labor-backed challengers in the recall election were terrified to even mention the forced-dues issue.



We blitzed those districts with three separate mailings totaling almost 200,000 pieces of mail, making sure constituents knew where each candidate stood on forced dues, and asking them to call the pro-forced unionism politicians and demand they change their ways - and we followed that with emails and phone calls.



The people of Wisconsin took care of the rest. In the end, only two of the six Republicans lost but neither lost because of their support for Governor Walker's reform bill.



One Republican who lost had been dogged by a tawdry infidelity scandal, yet his union-label opponent only scraped by with 51 percent of the vote - hardly a rebuke of employee freedom.



Another union hierarchy-backed candidate won in District 32, where Barack Obama overwhelmingly won in 2008 with 61 percent of the vote.



Without the generosity and commitment of Right to Work supporters in these battles, the union bosses and their allies may have succeeded in their schemes to take over the Wisconsin Supreme Court and retake the State Senate with forced-unionism proponents.



And now that the union bosses and their allies are gearing up to spend even more in their desperate attempt to recall Scott Walker, those of us who support worker freedom must fight back.



Tens of thousands of Right to Work supporters nationwide have signed Letters of Encouragement for Governor Walker, but that's only one step.



We've got to be ready to once again bring worker freedom front and center in the campaign.



You see, Big Labor and their puppet politicians don't want Wisconsin voters to think about Right to Work or how the reforms are already paying off:

The Kaukauna School Board relied on the reforms to turn a $400,000 deficit into a $1.5 million surplus, hire more teachers, and reduce class sizes without the burdensome meddling of teacher union bosses;
School districts across the state are projected to save millions of dollars each year by shopping around for competitively priced health insurance providers;
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, one of the Democrats vying for the chance to oppose Governor Walker in the June 5 recall, publicly admitted that his city would save "at least $25 million a year and potentially as much as $36 million in 2012."Instead, the union bosses want to hoodwink the voters and pretend the election isn't about restoring Big Labor's dominance in Madison.




It's vital we do everything we can to prevent a union-boss takeover in Wisconsin because this election could send shockwaves from coast to coast.



You see, even though the Democrats and union bosses aren't talking about the labor law reforms now, if they end up taking out Governor Walker in the recall election, they'll turn around and scream at the top of their lungs that the election really was about Right to Work.



They want to frighten elected officials and grassroots activists and stop the growing Right to Work movement in its tracks.



We won't let that happen.



Your National Right to Work Committee is prepared to turn up the heat - mail, phones, email and internet ads, radio, even TV ads if funding permits - to inform Wisconsin voters about the effects of the reforms and where the candidates stand.



But we need help from concerned citizens like you to bring this plan into action.



Please, click here to chip in with a contribution of $10 or more to help the Committee fight back. (http://paracom.paramountcommunication.com/ct/8511796:11840792116:m:1:151894444:7A76FD33B9C45E64 4E6A0230F19D755B:r)



It's crucial we not let the union bosses drown out the voices of those who support worker freedom.



Your action was critical in encouraging Governor Walker to stand up to Big Labor one year ago, and I know I can continue to count on you going forward.



And you can count on your Committee - just as we did during the legislative battle, the judicial election, and the State Senate recalls - to make sure the issue of worker freedom versus forced-union dues isn't swept under the rug.



I hope you'll act right away.



Sincerely,

In a move that has infuriated the state's recall-hungry Democrats, Wisconsin officials have released a new jobs report that bears significant and encouraging news. Via the Walker campaign:



A quarterly report released today by the Department of Workforce Development (DWD) shows Wisconsin created 23,321 jobs in 2011. Wisconsin employers have now put more than 33,521 people back to work so far under Governor Walker’s leadership. “With more than 33,000 jobs created since Governor Walker took office and the unemployment rate plummeting to its lowest since 2008, it is certain the governor’s bold reforms and leadership are moving Wisconsin forward,” said Walker campaign spokeswoman Ciara Matthews. “Governor Walker’s policies have helped employers put more people back to work and our economy is moving toward greater prosperity for all. In contrast, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is presiding over a 28 percent spike in unemployment during his reign as mayor of the nation’s ninth poorest city. Wisconsinites cannot afford to undo the forward progress made under Governor Walker and go backward with Mayor Barrett and his failed record.” The quarterly data issued today by the DWD is comprised of reports issued to 96 percent of Wisconsin employers (over 150,000 Wisconsin employers).


The Journal-Sentinel calls the release of this data "unusual," but admits that many economists believe the measure supporting Walker's just-released figures is substantially more accurate than other methods:

Walker is estimated through polling to have a 6% lead.

He wins on;
Collective Bargaining (Barrett now claims is just a distraction)
Jobs (Walker's performance state wide kicks Milwaukee's ass big time on jobs)
and Ethics.

It is funny, Barrett called him out for a John Doe investigation that Walker started.
The next day Barrett's wife gets busted for campaigning on Milwaukee Public Schools computers during work hours!!
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

These people are amazing.
They have just about lost all credibility with the people paying the freight!!:D

Hope that is true but they seem to have a lot of sambos out there that are pretty clueless and are going to toe the party line!
