Scott Walker did technically say he would create jobs while governor, but he perhaps failed to mention that those jobs were created in neighboring states. It’s frankly confounding how he would use data from a jobs website to somehow parse credit for jobs in those other states. Is he that stupid? Does he think we’re as stupid as he is?
Nearly one-in-five of the jobs listed on a state website touted by Gov. Scott Walker as a resource for unemployed Wisconsin residents are actually located in neighboring states, according to an analysis by The Associated Press.
More than 32,000 job openings were posted on the Job Center of Wisconsin’s website as of Tuesday, but about 18 percent of them were in Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa and Michigan. It was unclear how many of those roughly 6,000 jobs could be filled through telecommuting, though many appeared to require on-site work.
Walker has already claimed he created jobs that the former governor Doyle had created, so I guess we should see this as a trend in the Fitzwalkerstan School of Koch Brother Deception.
What’s next? Walker invented butter?
