The Walker Budget Keeps On Working! Part CXXXI - Fitzwalkerstan Reclaims #1 Edition

Again, Scott Walker leads Fitzwalkerstan to its former position as Number One - in job losses:
Wisconsin’s loss of 13,200 jobs in June was the largest in the nation, according to data released today by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The largest over-the-month increase in employment occurred in California (+38,300), followed by Ohio (+18,400) and North Carolina (+16,900).

The largest over-the-month decrease in employment occurred in Wisconsin (-13,200), followed by Tennessee (-12,100) and Maryland (-11,000).

Forty-seven states and the District of Columbia registered unemployment rate decreases from a year earlier.

Wisconsin’s unemployment rate grew in June to 7.0 percent from 6.8 percent in May.
I'm sure that all of the people who voted for Walker - twice - are sure proud of themselves.

Walker said that the job numbers would explode as soon as he won the recall election. Which shows what happen when one puts their fate in the hands of an uneducated corporate-puppet and doesn't know the difference between the words "explode" and "implode."
