MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker and his Democratic challenger Tom Barrett are sparring for a fifth day over how many jobs have been created or lost in Wisconsin.
A new U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics report released Friday shows Wisconsin lost more jobs than any other state between April 2011 and last month. But Walker says that should be ignored because of more comprehensive survey of employers actually shows a 23,300 job gain in 2011 versus a nearly 34,000 loss.
Walker released those figures before they had been vetted by the BLS, a move Barrett says makes them unreliable and unbelievable.
The debate over jobs comes less than three weeks before the June 5 recall vote.
