WOW Stupendous! 41st in the Nation. Behind even the evil "Progressive states"! Nice work Scutt! And now since it's confirmed that his job numbers claim was not accurate, more charges can be added....Right?

Washington, D.C.- Wisconsin gained just under 20,000 jobs last year, according to data published by the federal government Thursday, putting it behind 40 other states in its rate of job growth in 2011.

The figures support Gov. Walker's contention during the recall campaign that Wisconsin gained rather than lost jobs in his first year in office.

But they also show Wisconsin lagging behind the nation as a whole in job creation in 2011.

The data come from the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages, and cover the fourth quarter of last year.

The report shows that between December 2010 and December 2011, Wisconsin had a net gain of 19,551 jobs in the public and private sector combined. That's an increase of about seven-tenths of one percent, ranking Wisconsin 41st in percentage job growth in the United States last year and behind other Midwestern states such as Minnesota, Iowa, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.

So while we may not be at the top of the list we are moving in the right direction under Gov. Walker.
It seems Walkers jobs numbers were more accurate than the deomcrats thought!

It's still way better than what Barrett and the Dems were spouting in their much more inaccurate numbers that showed job losses.
