The Walker Budget Is Already Working! Part LVIII

I received word from a faithful reader and friend of Cog Dis that there are two Milwaukee area stores that are "enjoying" the benefits of Scott Walker's budget.

The Williams-Sonoma store in Bayshore has closed its doors already.

The Gap store in Brookfield Square is closing on January 23rd.

There is no word on how many people will be losing their jobs from these two closings.

But it only goes to prove what I've been saying all along.  As Walker takes the money out of circulation and concentrates it in the hands of his wealthy contributors, most of them out of state, that leaves people with no spending cash to buy much but the bare essentials.

This hurts the stores, which in turn downsize or close altogether, taking the economy further along the downward spiral.

The sooner we get rid of the corporate puppet, the better off we'll all be.  Then maybe we can start gaining jobs again, like the rest of the nation has been doing for months.
