The Unemployment Numbers Scott Walker doesn’t want made public.

Yep, it's about jobs all right...

Now we'll see whether Wisconsinites are able to wade through Walker's radioactive advertising tsunami to see how bad things really are.

TOTH to Badger Democracy.

The Unemployment Numbers Scott Walker doesn’t want made public while he plays politics « Badger Democracy
Scott Walker is playing a political game with the unemployment numbers. Releasing unverified survey results last week, over one month ahead of the official verified Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) numbers, Walker again walked the thin line of legality in his “official” announcement – closely followed by the release of a new campaign ad on  statewide television. Recent long-term unemployment numbers not released by the Walker Administration were obtained from the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development (DWD) by Badger Democracy. These verified figures show that under Scott Walker, Wisconsin has suffered persistent long-term unemployment-which Walker himself has ignored in lieu of playing political games with the numbers in the short recall election cycle.
