The Walker Budget Is Already Working! Part XXXI

Hey, everyone! We're number 1!
The largest increases in initial claims for the week ending October 15 were in Puerto Rico (+1,286), Wisconsin (+1,193), South Carolina (+1,189), Oregon (+416), and Nebraska (+241) while the largest decreases were in California (-8,942), New York (-7,273), Texas (-3,489), Pennsylvania (-3,258), and Georgia (-2,740).
Thanks to Scott Walker and his ideological agenda, Wisconsin was the not-so-proud owner of the dubious achievement of being the state that lost the most jobs last week!

And that's not all!

We're number 2!

  1. The effects of Walkers budgeting while Milwaukee County Exec are still lingering on. The staffing in the Milwaukee County Parks Department is pretty low. This winter the snow removal operations may be a little slower than taxpayers were hoping for.
    Part of the probelm is as employees retire they are not being replaced for several months. This leaves a small workforce even more shorthanded,especially when the majority of full time Park employees work in administration and not out in the field. It also seems that some of the managers get pay raises while the workers in the field get nothing. Too bad, some of that extra money could have gone to put a few more people to work.
