Wisconsin Republicans statement on jobs report
MADISON, Wis. -- Republican Party of Wisconsin Communications Director Ben Sparks released the following statement regarding today's jobs report from the Department of Workforce Development:
"With today's jobs report showing the state unemployment rate dropped to 6.9% in January, it's clear that Wisconsin has laid the groundwork for economic growth under Governor Walker's leadership. Todays report represents the sixth straight month that Wisconsin has experienced a steadily declining unemployment rate, now at its lowest since December 2008. After three straight years of job loss under the failed policies of the Doyle administration, culminating in a 9.1% unemployment rate, Governor Walker has turned Wisconsin around from the Democrats' era of job loss."
