Wrong. WI has almost a 6% unemployment rate and is in the top half of our country for unemployment.

That report showed Wisconsin ranked 38th nationwide in private-sector job growth in 2014. Wisconsin's private-sector job growth was 1.51 percent, down from 2.6 percent nationwide.

The CNN link you conveniently chose is one year old.

The link from BLS in post 360, page 36 , one month old, shows WI unemployment at 4.6%.

PS from your 2nd link, recent Jan 15 data "The statewide unemployment rate for January was 5 percent, the lowest it’s been since August 2008."
Best in 7 years-how horrible..people working.

Not good compared to the rest of our country and the unemployment rate is on the rise in WI.

4.6% Wisconsin; 5.3% USA.

Most states would love 4.6%. That is better than good!

Our unemployment rate is down from where it had been, but our middle class is also shrinking. I guess that's the kind of economy Republicans want...lots of people working menial jobs making $10.00/hr or less, and surviving on government assistance. No unions to fight for better wages, benefits, and work place protections, too.

Then for the life of me, with all that added income tax revenue coming in, understand why WI currently has a 2.2 billion dollar budget deficit! Too bad Walker didn't have a college course in economics.

What’s really concerning is that Walker generated this $2.2 billion deficit during a period of economic growth.

Gov. Scott Walker’s administration is projecting a $2.2 billion deficit heading into the 2015-17 budget cycle.

That’s a sizable hole for Walker, who is contemplating a 2016 presidential run, to climb out of as he crafts his budget proposal due out early next year

Wisconsin principal pay tops peers, teachers below average
So pay increased, despite your claim and your response is, not enough.

Dont care.. The state government shouldnt have any control over teacher salaries, they should be regional.

If you want wages to go up, you lower the unemployment rate and let the economy dictate the need to increase salaries..

Democratic solutions of increasing unemployment through welfare etc, lowers the demand to pay acceptable wages..

Democratics policies fail every single time.
