Lawmaker Questions Legislative Agenda in Light of Jobs Report
Wisconsin is among a very small group. At least when it comes to total job numbers for last year. Revised totals from the feds say Wisconsin lost over 12 thousand jobs in 2011. One of only five states to lose jobs for the year. Which makes it all the more frustrating, says Onalaska state rep Steve Doyle, that more is not being done at the close of the current legislative session to create more jobs in the state
Wisconsin lost a total of 12 thousand non-farm jobs last year. The biggest loser of jobs in the nation. The state with the next largest number of job losses was Missouri, with four thousand.
