Today, the full "gold standard report was released, and as usual, feel free to go to the QCEW map site to break down the data by state and county.
As predicted, Wisconsin's numbers were bad for the September 2017-September 2018 time period, and were well behind the numbers the Walker Administration were claiming before the November elections.

Don't let @rep89, @repvos and #wiright lie about this. https://t.co/NhKEHwV3ss#wiunion #wipolitics @JFCDemocrats
And for the 29th straight quarter since Walker/WisGOP budgets have been the law in Wisconsin, our state was in the bottom half of the US for rate of job growth.
Wis is in bottom half of US in all of these job categories from Sept 2017-Sept 2018, including mid 30s (again) for private jobs and all jobs, and 6th out of 7 in the Midwest.#wiunion #wipolitics #wiright @JFCDemocrats @devilradio— JakeEdwards (@JakeMadtown) March 6, 2019
To be exact, Wisconsin was 36th out of the 50 states for all jobs, and 34th for private sector jobs. Both numbers were less than 20,000, and well below a 1% rate.
Lastly, Wisconsin's manufacturers continue to fail to pay an adequate wage to workers, despite getting hundreds of millions of dollars in tax cuts each year by Walker and WisGOP.
Lastly, report shows Wis still has the worst manufacturing wages in the Midwest, so @TonyEvers and @JFCDemocrats should absolutely demand end to $270 mil Big Giveaway tax cut to large Wis manufacturers in #wibudget#wiunion #wipolitics #wiright @WiBudgetProject @devilradio— JakeEdwards (@JakeMadtown) March 6, 2019
Average weekly wage, manufacturing Sept 2018
These numbers also tell me that tomorrow's new Wisconsin jobs report for January 2019 will show a major downward revision of job growth by around 20,000. This means that Scott Walker and the Wisconsin GOP likely fell short of adding 250,000 jobs in Wisconsin, despite having 8 years to do so instead of the 4 Scotty promised voters in 2010.
You wonder how that guy lost despite Scotty and his GOP allies spending $23 million more than Tony Evers and Dems? Us falling short of the "gold standard" (again) helps to explain how.
