    Wisconsin loses more jobs again in April

    Don't believe that lying SOB, Scott Walker. He will be the death of Wisconsin if voters are dumb enough to swallow the Kool-aid. For you long shareholders, I feel bad because nobody should lose retirement funds due to the 1% who would gladly steal all you have to enrich themselves.

    In April 2012, nonfarm payroll employment increased in 32 states and the District of
    Columbia and decreased in 18 states. The largest over-the-month increase in
    employment occurred in Indiana (+17,100), followed by Texas (+13,200) and Georgia
    (+7,800). The largest over-the-month decrease in employment occurred in Maryland
    (-6,000), followed by Wisconsin (-5,900) and New Hampshire (-4,800). Hawaii
    experienced the largest over-the-month percentage increase in employment (+0.8 per-
    cent), followed by North Dakota (+0.7 percent) and Indiana (+0.6 percent). New
    Hampshire experienced the largest over-the-month percentage decline in employment

    • Commerce ... AMEN!!!!

    • As more and more Wisconsin communities begin to realize the benefits of reining-in run away expense control by government "unions" in their myriad forms it's refreshing to see more "elected" officials FINALLY realize that they are ELECTED to SERVE the people...ALL the people of the state, not just the 22% who are on the public payroll...
      While the methodology left a little to be desired, Walker's changes are FINALLY confronting the financial disaster being caused by run-away, self-serving bureaucracy and putting some sense of fairness and balance back into the governed/govern equation...
      The "protests" by those we PAY to govern and educate and their illegal actions show just how far out of whack we have allowed OUR civil service system to become...EVERY WISCONSINITE should be thanking WALKER for his efforts to bring government back to the people...ALL OF THE PEOPLE!

    • before lipping off on this board

      Excuse me, I thought it was STILL a free country. And, when did YOU take up residence here? Is it Occupy MTW board, now, too?

      Some here will remember me from 2009-2010 when we were buying MTW sub-$5!

      As far as doing MY homework? Pot calling the kettle black, table for one!!

      Have a good Memorial Weekend, all!

    • The protest were about the removal of bargaining rights.was your head in the sand or what?Please do your homework before lipping off on this board.

    • I was talking about the rich paying more,use your brain just A little bit.

    • and the beatles

      Ouch, Tailspin!

      I LOVE the Beatles, and I'm ok! lol

    • Sorry, but I do teach in the classroom, beside my full time job.So before you open your big mouth,like so many students,think before you speek.

      OMG...you're kidding. Please tell me you are kidding? I'm speechless, but the more I think about it, not surprised! As I said, I left because of union policies that maintained the dead wood.

      How about the new teacher, voted Best New Teacher, that was laid off due to seniority provisions. Peter Principle!

    • First of all, the teachers agreed to pay more.Why is it ok for the working people of this state to pay more, but the rich to pay nothing?

      Agreed to pay more? Apparently, you didn't see the protests down at the state capitol? If that's agreement, I'd hate to see disagreement. And, I suggest you step away from the kool-aid, there, bucko ... 47% of citizens in this country pay NO federal income tax. The rich pay nothing? Use your brain and the resources available to avail yourself of some statistics, would you?

      Better to remain quiet and have people think you a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

      [paraphrased]
