Job Numbers Continue Six-Month Plummet Under Walker Failure

Another 3,900 Private Sector Jobs Lost

Madison -- One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross released the following statements on the latest news that Gov. Scott Walker's failed economic policies have resulted in six straight months of job loss in Wisconsin, despite job creation happening in states across the nation.

"Gov. Scott Walker has failed Wisconsin. His corporate tax breaks have failed us. His gutting of public education has failed us. His cuts to health care for 65,000 people includung 29,000 children have failed us. His turning over of state government to his corporate donors has failed us. His raising taxes by $70 million on seniors and the working poor have failed us. His tearing of Wisconsin apart to take away the rights of 175,000 has utterly failed us. Trickle down economics has never worked for the middle class and the poor and Gov. Walker's trickle down on steroids is a continuing and complete failure."
