The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (www.jsonline.com/blogs/news/264113781.html) reports results of the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages-the government's most reliable source of employment data and the one Walker endorsed as the authoritative measure of job trends at the state level-as follows: *Instead of 250,000 new private-sector jobs, as Walker promised, the state is on pace for less than half that many in Walker's first term; *Wisconsin ranked 37th of 50 states in private-sector job growth in 2013. Wisconsin averaged 1.3% in annual private-sector job growth since 2010; the national average, 2.1%. Walker replaced the State Department of Commerce with WEDC (Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation), a quasi-private entity that Walker said would spur economic development. Despite Walker's unwavering support, WEDC failed to boost Wisconsin's economy. "W is for WEDC - Gov. Scott Walker's Privatized Commerce Department: A Case Study in Corruption, Cronyism and Incompetence," (onewisconsinnow.org) 5-29-14, by Jenni Dye, lists key findings: 1) Walker received more than $2 million direct and indirect campaign benefit from WEDC recipients. Walker donors account for only 30% of the recipients of WEDC incentives but received nearly 60% ($570,021,034) of total funding ($974,659,130 through 2013); 2) WEDC economic development dollars are not resulting in promised job creation; 3) WEDC recipients feature companies engaged in health and safety violations, mass layoffs and conflicts of interest. Under Walker nearly $1 billion of our WEDC tax dollars were awarded to companies, a disproportionate share of which went to Walker's supporters, who in turn made campaign donations to Walker. Walker's administration and campaign are perpetuating the myth, now incorrectly held by 51% of voters (law.marquette.edu), that Wisconsin's job growth is as good as or better than other states.
