Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s bid to defend himself against a recall election just got a lot tougher. According to new data from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, Wisconsin saw the largest decrease in jobs over the last year of all the states in the nation.
Wisconsin jobs dropped by nearly a full percentage point.
That’s not exactly the news the Governor wants to hear after he promised to create 250,000 jobs during his first term in office. In the month of March – other states that have pushed austerity – like Ohio and New Jersey – also saw job losses.
