Wisconsin falls to 44th in private-sector job creation
Wisconsin ranked 44th out of the 50 states in private-sector job creation in the 12 months from September 2011 to September 2012. The state's position has deteriorated progressively from a revised rank of 41st in the previous 12-month period through June 2012; and from a rank of 37th in the 12 months through March 2012.
Between 2004 and 2007, private-sector job growth was slower in Wisconsin than in the U.S. as a whole, and the state ranked anywhere from 30th to 42nd annually.
But the latest leg of the economic cycle has been the most confounding. During the searing recession of 2008-'10, North America, Europe and Asia hemorrhaged jobs, and Wisconsin was no exception. But the gap between private-sector job growth in Wisconsin and growth nationally has increased substantially since 2010.
For example, Wisconsin ranked 11th among the 50 states in 2010 in private-sector job growth, outperforming the nation as a whole. But it dropped to 38th in 2011, Gov. Scott Walker's first year in office, and then the slide continued to 44th place.
Walker has argued that last year's special recall elections and protests fomented by his critics created uncertainty for business. Economists point out that the governor's austerity policies - including cutting public-sector jobs, pay, and benefits - are to blame: consumers having less money to spend inevitably depresses business growth, which in turn depresses employment. Walker also rejected millions in federal money for infrastructure projects that are needed and that would have boosted employment at little or no cost to the state.
The quarterly census also measures wages, which have been in decline to differing degrees in almost all of the 50 states. Wages in Wisconsin fell faster and harder than most of the nation. When ranked by the percentage change in all private-sector employment, Wisconsin average wages had the 45th-worst ranking of 50 states.
This was suppose to be about Ford Motor Company. But I guess it takes some brains to put two sentences together w/o butchering the English language.
Like not knowing the difference between suppose and supposed? (Sorry, couldn't resist. Glass houses and all that.)
ROFLMAO. It is on basic because of demand.
Right. All businesses give away cheap what's in demand and charge extra for what's not in demand.
Enough to know that it's bullschidt, yes. There's nothing fair about it. 29.8% and very regressive on income.
President Barack Obama vowed Friday to join Planned Parenthood in fighting against what he said were efforts across the country to turn women's health back to what the country was found upon---morals.
No, he didn't. And you know it.
Feel free to stop lying.
Republican Senator Mike Enzi of Wyoming introduced the so-called Marketplace Fairness Act that would enforce state sales taxes on online purchases. The Republican cosponsors of S. 1832 are Sens. Lamar Alexander, Roy Blunt, John Boozman, and Bob Corker.
Imbecile thinks the President has control over state taxes.
Insane? Vastly ignorant? Maximally dishonest?
All of the above.
Enforcing state sales tax on internet purchases is a bill put forth by republicans, and there is no sales tax on home sales.
Actually it's time to
a) Drop the "Right to work" euphemism, one of the most dishonest ones going. Call it what it is: right to be exploited.
b) Stop being a lemming-like tool of the Mr. Burns of the world. It's not only against your own interests, it's against the interests of the American people as a whole.
Bush was not a poor excuse for a president all you have to do is look at how well everything was during his time in office.

Winston Smith hard at work. Bit beware, GOP...
At the Minitrue, Winston is an editor responsible for historical revisionism, concording the past to the Grand Old Party's ever-changing official version of the past, thus making the Republican government seem infallible. As such, he perpetually rewrites records and alters photographs, rendering the deleted people as "unpersons"; the original documents are incinerated in a "memory hole."
Despite enjoying the intellectual challenges of historical revisionism, he becomes increasingly fascinated by the true past and tries to learn more about it. He eventually keeps a journal of negative thoughts and opinions about the GOP, and the Koch brothers which, if uncovered by the Thought Police, would warrant death.
On November 22 (Thanksgiving day), 2012, two teens, 18 year old Haile Kifer, and her cousin, 17 year old Nicholas Brady, allegedly broke into the home of Bryon David Smith in Little Falls, Minnesota. Smith, armed with a Ruger Mini-14, shot the two teens separately and minutes apart as they entered the basement where he was, later claiming to police he was worried about them being armed.
By his account to police, he shot Brady twice at the top of the basement stairs, and once in the face fatally after he fell to the bottom of the stairs. Minutes later when Kifer entered the basement, he shot her at the top of the stairs. Wounded, she fell down the stairs, and after Smith's rifle jammed, he shot her multiple times in the chest with a .22-caliber revolver, dragged her across the floor to set her beside the body of her cousin, and then shot her fatally under the chin.
Smith's statements to police describe delivering killing shots to the heads of both victims after he had shot them on the stairs and they had fallen to the basement floor wounded. In his statement, Smith said that Kifer had let out a short laugh after she fell down the stairs, saying "If you're trying to shoot somebody and they laugh at you, you go again." Analysts have said that the initial shootings would probably have been justified under Minnesota's Castle law, but that the subsequent shots were not justified once any threat had been removed. Sheriff Wetzel said that the law "doesn't permit you to execute somebody once a threat is gone." Smith has been charged with two counts of second degree murder. Hamline University School of Law professor Joseph Olson: "I think the first shot is justified. After the person is no longer a threat because they're seriously wounded, the application of self-defense is over."
We do live in the United States of America. A State is a self governing political entity.
And they can and do make very different laws. The states are actually rather disunited in many ways.
When Oblama won, we all lost.
Except for flush investors who bought stocks and real estate during The Great Bushite Financial Meltdown.
Whenever repubs tank the economy, buy carefully but largely.
Yep, so often they behave like 4-year-olds. Don't get their way? Throw a fit and go tell Mommy.
