New employment numbers showing how well Wisconsin is doing compared with its neighbors are scheduled to be released.
The numbers coming Wednesday from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics will show job creation over the 12 months between June 2012 and June 2013.
Gov. Scott Walker's administration released preliminary numbers that showed the state added nearly 24,000 private sector jobs during that time. But the BLS release will make it possible to compare Wisconsin's performance with other states.
Over the first two years of Walker's term, through December 2012, the state gained 63,000 private sector jobs. That is only about a quarter of the way toward fulfilling Walker's signature 2010 campaign promise to add 250,000 jobs over four years.
