Wisconsin’s Private Sector Job Creation Ranking

Madison – State Senator Chris Larson released the following statement regarding the failure of Walker and legislative Republicans to keep jobs numbers in pace with the rest of the nation.

“Legislative Republicans have lied to Wisconsin families and betrayed our shared values time and time again. As a result, we are seeing our economy lag behind the rest our Midwest neighbors and the nation. The GOP in control has utterly failed to work with Democrats on proposals that would increase wages and stimulate economic growth.

“While Walker and Republicans have deceived hardworking Wisconsinites, the numbers shed light on the truth. Since the GOP took control in 2011, they have been bent on enacting policies that dismantle our tradition of workplace freedoms and protections, putting Wisconsin’s jobs numbers below the national average. The misplaced priorities of the governor and legislative Republicans, such as the unconstitutional, so-called “Right-to-Work” law, have served as a catalyst for their failure to keep pace with national job growth trends. In fact, Wisconsin’s private-sector jobs numbers have underperformed for the last 16 consecutive quarters.

“With a losing streak this bad, it is clear our state needs a new playbook. The tired and predictable GOP special interest plays do not work. Every Wisconsin fan knows: we can do better.”
