Half of the nation's jobs created in June came from Wisconsin

Wisconsin’s New Jobs Account for More than Half of Nation’s Net Gain for June

While Nation Sputters on Jobs, Wisconsin Economy Begins to Hum

[Madison, Wisc…] Earlier this month, analysts were dismayed by the nation’s anemic job creation numbers. On Thursday, state officials were pleased as they released data that showed more than half of the net new jobs added in the US in June came from Wisconsin.

“We have made difficult decisions in our state, but they are beginning to payoff,” said Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R). “The national job figures remind us that we can not rest after one month of good news; while there will be ups and downs along the way, we must help lead the nation to recovery.”

Using seasonally adjusted data, the 12,900 private-sector jobs created in June marks the largest one-month gain in Wisconsin since September 2003. The state’s net new job gain for June is 9,500 jobs, more than half of the nation’s net gain of 18,000 jobs for the same month.

Many in the past had given up looking for a job which removed them from the unemployment rolls – now they are back to looking for jobs. In June there were 118,800 total entrants to the labor force, up 15,100 from May. That boosted the overall unemployment rate .2 percent to 7.6. Wisconsin’s unemployment rate remains below the national rate of 9.2%.

“Wisconsin has added 39,300 private-sector jobs since Governor Walker declared Wisconsin open for business,” Department of Workforce Development Secretary Scott Baumbach said. “Jobseekers and employers alike are reaping the economic benefits of the business-friendly environment that Governor Walker is advancing, and we encourage jobseekers to keep pursuing these new employment opportunities.”

State officials note that in the first six months of 2011, Wisconsin’s total private sector job growth of 1.7% has been almost twice the national rate of 0.9%; and in the manufacturing sector job growth has been more than twice the national rate, 3.2% compared to 1.2%.

Wisconsin total nonfarm job growth (1.4%) has been more that twice the national rate (0.6%).

Governor Walker has made job creation a focus of his platform, vowing to help Wisconsin’s private sector create a quarter of million new jobs by the end of his term. Administration officials were quick to tout the new numbers Thursday, with Walker holding a noon press conference in Milwaukee and Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch and Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation CEO Paul Jadin holding another in Green Bay two hours later.

Since January, Wisconsin has added 39,300 new jobs, with 14,100 of those in the ever-important manufacturing sector. Eight hundred new manufacturing jobs were created in the state in June.

Compared to a year ago, private sector jobs increased by 42,400 (seasonally adjusted)

If I were Kotter's estranged twin I would say:

Heh. Not saying it's because of Scott Walker, but the data is there. Heh. Not saying that at all, but just saying. Heh. It certainly doesn't show anything that Jim Doyle did helped these figures. Heh. Just sayin'. Heh.

But seriously, any theories? I'm genuinely asking because I don't know. Wisconsin hasn't been that active in trying to bring in new industry/business, nor have they tried re-investment programs. The collective bargaining bill DID save a ton of teacher jobs, apparently.

What do you think? Is this fuzzy math?

The headline is: "Wisconsin’s New Jobs Account for More than Half of Nation’s Net Gain for June". This is GROSSLY misleading. Basically a flat lie.

Here's the deal -- the net number nationwide is +18K jobs or something pathetic. EVERY state, however, has + or - some number that adds up to a gross +18K.

Wisconsin was +9K. GREAT. But it's not like a handful of other states somewhere were + some number that added up to the "other half" of jobs created, while EVERY other state was net zero.

Instead, this state was up that much, that other state down some number.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics:

Wisconsin.....................| 2,764,100 | 2,773,600 | 9,500
--------------------------------------------------------------------------


So does Texas get to claim they account for more htan double the entire net new jobs created in the country? California claims 150% more?

Makes no sense.

I don't have a problem with spinning things, but that is grossly misleading IMHO.

This is the part that, IMHO, is just a lie:

So Texas can say "more than double the net new jobs added in the US in June came from Texas."

Umm...what?

I get these calls from Gov Rick Scott every month. Last week I got one saying Florida's employment rate is improving faster than the rest of the country.
