The Walker Budget Is Working Already! Part XL

Well, this explains why Scott Walker is trying to focus the people on his lies about the school district and about how much money they're gonna save.  He doesn't want them to know what's going on with the jobs situation:
Wisconsin’s seasonally adjusted October unemployment rate was 7.7 percent, down slightly from 7.8 percent in September, but the state lost 9,300 private sector jobs in October, the Wisconsin Workforce Department of Workforce Development reported today.

The preliminary estimate of total private sector employment for October was 2,337,300.

The preliminary data indicates declines from September to October in manufacturing, health care, construction, retail trade and other sectors. Leisure and hospitality was one of the sectors with one-month gains.

Government employment was relatively flat.
Walker's (third) DWD Secretary blames it on the national economy. But then those gosh-darned facts got in the way and we learned that the rest of the nation has been gaining jobs while Walker is chasing ours out of the state.

Jake, who does his usual bang up job on these issues, points out that the state has lost 27,600 jobs in the last three months and there is no signs of it getting better in the foreseeable future.
