ICYMI: Scott Walker Caught in a Jobs Lie

Aug 18, 2013

Scott Walker’s claim that, under his leadership, “Wisconsin has seen its best two-year job growth in a decade” is false.

That’s according to the fact-checkers at Politifact Wisconsin, who rated Walker’s claim thusly:

“Not true, we found: Private job growth was higher in 2010-11, in the final year of Doyle and the first year under Walker. And total employment including government jobs rose faster from 2003-05 and 2010-11 than in the two-year Walker period.

We rate his claim False.”
