The Walker Budget Is Already Working! Part XXXIV

Last week, thanks to Scott Walker's budget, Wisconsin had his second consecutive major jump in unemployment while the rest of the nation's unemployment dropped.  This week, Walker repeats the ignoble feat for a third time:
The stock market rose today with the news that the number of Americans who filed new applications for unemployment benefits fell to the lowest level in seven months, the U.S. Labor Department reported today.

The department said initial jobless claims fell by 10,000 to a seasonally adjusted 390,000 in the week ended Nov. 5.

However, the number of first-time unemployment claims in Wisconsin increased again to 12,743 for the week from 12,301 in the prior week, according to the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development.
You gotta wonder if he realizes he's only adding to the army of people that want to recall him and now have the time to collect the signatures.
