Fitzwalkerstan's Slide Into Oblivion Continues

In the same week which saw petitions with over a million signatures calling for the recall of the corporate tool known as Scott Walker, new job loss statistics painted a bleak picture of ongoing job loss in Wisconsin. The Milwaukee Journal explains:
"According to data released Thursday by the state Department of Workforce Development, the state lost an estimated 3,900 jobs in the private sector in December from November. In the same month, the United States gained an estimated 212,000 jobs, outstripping expectations of most economists and raising hopes that employers are gaining confidence at the national level."
The chart above, courtesy of BadgerStat, rather starkly depicts the reality of "job creation" under the Walker administration.
