Gov. Walker: Job Gains Continue

Scott Walker: Wisconsin created more than 37,000 private sector jobs from March 2011 to March 2012, including a gain of 12,138 jobs in the manufacturing sector.

The state partnered with the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association to produce and distribute brief radio address once a week.  Audio files and a written transcript of this radio address can be accessed on http://www.wi-broadcasters.org and http://walker.wi.gov/Weekly-Radio-Addresses.  To download an mp3 file, you can right click the radio address link and click “save link as.”

Thursday, Gov. Scott Walker delivered the weekly radio address titled Job Gains Continue.

Hi, this is Scott Walker.

This week the federal government verified the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages for the first quarter of 2012.  It showed Wisconsin created more than 37,000 private sector jobs from March 2011 to March 2012, including a gain of 12,138 jobs in the manufacturing sector. 

Wisconsin’s continued private sector job growth is good news.  I am particularly pleased with the gains in the manufacturing sector, which makes up a huge portion of our state’s economy.

The quarterly job count data shows, yet again, the monthly job estimates are not accurate.  I am hopeful that the state Department of Workforce Development will be able to work with the federal government to bring the monthly estimates back in line with the actual job numbers. 

The fiscal reforms we put in place coupled with reforms like reducing frivolous lawsuits and bringing certainty and accountability to state regulations, have established a strong foundation for job growth.

Moving forward, we will continue to find ways to make it easier for the people of our state to put Wisconsinites back to work.

How can you call him a hater looks to me like he is the only one telling the truth, after all the worst Governor in wisconsin history did say in 4 years he would create 250.000 new jobs in 2 years so he has 2 more years to create 213.000 more

its hard to take some of these comments seriously, what with the juvenile tone to them.

What is the bragodoccio Walker going on about now? Seems Wisconsin is being swept up in the rise in number of jobs nationally. All Walker has to do is sit back so he does not screw things up and let the Obama job tide raise Walker's dinghy out of the mud flats..
