On the Wisconsin jobs loss story:
The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development reported Wednesday that the state lost 9,700 jobs in October, primarily in Milwaukee. The statewide unemployment rate for October was 7.7 percent.
The monthly number compared with other states across the country is the worst in the nation. It’s the fourth month in a row that the state has lost jobs, WISC-TV reported.
While some areas of the state did add positions, including about 1,000 jobs in the Madison area, Workforce Development officials said the statewide trend is concerning.
