The Walker Budget Is Already Working: Part XVI

As a rule of thumb, it generally takes three to six months for an economic policy to have a noticeable affect on the economy.

That means the effects of Scott Walker's union busting bill, which didn't go into effect until July, will be seen during the last quarter of this year.  Same goes for Walker's budget.

So how does Walker's promised land of 250,000 jobs look from here, just a few weeks away from the fruition of Walker's agenda?

Not too bloody good:
Hiring is likely to slow sharply in the Milwaukee area in the final three months of the year, according to Manpower Inc.'s latest quarterly report.

The global staffing company's survey shows that employers in the four-county region have scaled back their hiring plans. However, the same data also show that two-thirds of employers in the region plan to retain employees they currently have - an improvement over the previous quarter.
So how are our fearless leaders responding to this bit of bad news? Surely, they're admitting they were wrong and are taking immediate corrective actions, right?

No, not really.

Scott Walker is backpedalling as fast as he can from his promise of 250,000 jobs. Even worse, if that's even possible, the elitist Republican senators, who hold a reduced majority, decided to extend their August break through the month of September.  The lesser Fitzgerald, who thinks he should be our next US Senator, can't operate without his big brother's guidance, and is also going to slack off for another month.

They probably want to practice their croquet skills.

Maybe their next idea is that we all just ask Santa to bring us jobs for Christmas.
