    Wisconsin saw the largest percentage decrease in employment in the nation during the 12 months ending in March, a new report by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics said.

    During that time period, while 27 states and the District of Columbia saw significant job increases, only Wisconsin saw "statistically significant" job losses, the report said.

    From March 2011 to March 2012, the state lost 23,900 jobs, for the country's largest percentage decrease, at 0.9 percent.

    Of the 23,900 jobs lost in Wisconsin in that period, 17,900 were from the public sector and 6,000 were from the private sector, according to the BLS. (Note: Jobs and unemployment rate data in the BLS report for all the states and D.C. refers to non-farm employment.)

    Too bad Wisconsin had to waste all that money on the recall that won't recall Walker...

    On the plus side, a lot of union cash was wasted on it...:thup:

    Wisconsin governor releases better 2011 jobs data | www.foxreno.com


    Just a public service announcement for the k00ks on this forum...........best buckle up your chinstrap next month when the recall vote happens. Its not even going to be close. In fact, Im urging my conservative pals to check out MSNBC that night to watch epIc levels of angst and misery on the faces of O'Donnell and Schultz. Gonna be classic TV.............

    The OP looks like an attempt to pretend that the updated numbers still aren't known.
