Wisconsin's Private-Sector Growth Rate Lags Nation

Wisconsin's private-sector growth rate lags nation
A report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that Wisconsin gained 35,021 private-sector jobs in the 12 months from June 2013 to June 2014, a 1.5% growth rate that ranked the state 32nd among the 50 states. 
The state lagged the national growth rate of 2.3% for private-sector jobs in the period, continuing a trend that had been in place for the three previous years: Wisconsin has trailed the national rate of private-sector job creation since the second quarter of 2011, the data show.

The chart is rather impressive. Q1/2011
which was the only quarter Wi out performed the US was mostly Doyle's influence. Q2/11 Walker's policy started but Doyle's budget was still in effect. That quarter tied the US. From there on the US outpaced Wi.
Coach Walker's record is 0-12-1 and he just got a new 4 year contract.
You just gotta wonder.
