ILOVEDNY says so...
Walker told him that "no public sector jobs were eliminated," EXCEPT the 17,800 that actually were lost under Walker's regime. Walker lied to ILOVEDNY about the job numbers. How embarrassing.Originally Posted by ILOVEDNY:
Yet Scott Walker, who started getting unsustainable, public sector benefits under control resulting in NO public sector jobs being eliminated..
My, that's awkward. And not only that...While Wisconsin Gov, Scott Walker (R) fights to keep his job in a recall election scheduled for June, he is being forced to confront a harsh reality in his state: It lost more jobs during the past 12 months than any other state in the United States.
...Wisconsin lost 23,900 jobs between March 2011 and March 2012, according to data released Tuesday by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. The state’s lead in job losses is significantly greater than the rest of the 50 states: No other state lost more than 3,500 jobs.
The majority of the losses in Wisconsin, 17,800 were in the public sector. However, the state lost more private-sector jobs, 6,100, than any other state...
Even Walker himself admitted that his union busting efforts had nothing to do with saving money. So let's stop spreading the lie that "unsustainable, public sector benefits" had anything to do with the union-busting engaged in by Walker. You don't have to love unions to love the truth, like ILOVEDNY does.
