Today's Wisconsin jobs report in a nutshell.
Jobs up 6,400 in private sector for March.
BUT jobs revised DOWN 3,700 in February, which means net is +2,700 jobs, which is below the national rate, and the Walker jobs gap grows by another 1,000.
And only 900 private sector jobs added for the first 3 months of 2014. Flat-out awful.
BUT household survey shows 21,500 more Wisconsinites are working, which is how the unemployment rate can fall from. 6.3% to 5.9% in those 3 months.
Which means either pretty much every job a Wisconsinite got since the start of the year was in the Twin Cities or Chicago, or one of these surveys are wrong.
I'll have more analysis when I have the time, but them's the numbers.
