Record Employment


The unemployment rate for the La Crosse metropolitan area hit a new low in September, coming in at 2.0 percent for the first time, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics preliminary estimates released Wednesday.

The city of La Crosse was ranked fourth in the state with an unemployment rate of 2.2 percent in September, down from 2.9 percent in August. The estimated rates, which are not seasonally adjusted, were celebrated by the Department of Workforce Development.

“It’s great news for all the people in the state of Wisconsin, because it means they have the opportunity to have family-sustaining jobs,” Wisconsin DWD Secretary Ray Allen told the Tribune.
September marks the eighth consecutive month in which Wisconsin’s unemployment has been 3 percent or less. The record lows have been driven by strong economic development policies in the state, said Allen, saying positive changes are driving opportunities, such as Foxconn’s new facility.

    Trump economy just keeps on winning!

    Especially for minorities.

    Why would anyone want to be on liberal slave plantation again?

  2. Le Roi du Nord

    That’s it, pull the race card out of your bag of tricks.

  3. Kevin Scheunemann


    So I misused the race card by sharing Trump brought unprecedented wealth, blessing and opportunity to communities normally kept destitute by liberalism?

    Are you that clueless?

  4. Le Roi du Nord

    You played the race card in defense of a white nationalist.  How christian of you.

    The claims of “unprecedented wealth” ring hollow unless you are talking about the 1%ers.

  5. Kevin Scheunemann


    Trump called himself a “nationalist”, not a “white nationalist”.

    If he was a “white nationalist”, he would not have Kanye West hanging out at the White House with him.   Record numbers of minorities are supporting this Republican.

    Now who is playing the race card?   Are you one of these liberals feeling guilty because of his race?

  6. dad29

    K:  LeeRoy is playing the troll.  For him, it’s not a Hallowe’en costume, either.

  7. Le Roi du Nord

    So you are saying he is a minority?  He is a white as you are, k.

  8. Kevin Scheunemann


    I thought Elizabeth Warren proved you can be any minority no matter how white you are.

  9. Le Roi du Nord

    You dispute her DNA test?  Do you claim she has no Native American blood?  Whereas your idol falsely claimed to be of Swedish descent.

  10. Kevin Scheunemann


    Her test said she was 1/1024th Native American!

    The Cherokee nation came out and said she was not Cherokee!

    How is it in the PC lexicon, an insensitive white guy, like yourself, can tell the Cherokee nation who their citizens are?

    Trump’s bet BTW was for her to prove she was Native American. Cherokee nation, who are not Trump supporters, said she was not!

    It was a delicious self burn by Warren.

  11. Le Roi du Nord

    No k, that isn’t what the test said.  It said there was a range and that the low end was 1/1024.  Regardless, 1/1024 > 0.

    So what % of your idol is Swedish?

    I don’t give 2 hoots about trumps bet, we all knew he wouldn’t pay up anyway.  He never does.

  12. Paul

    WCCA indicates you don’t pay up, either.

  13. Kevin Scheunemann

    Nord ,

    The proof says Warren is whiter than ivory soap.

    Cherokee nation says she is not Native American.

    But, without proof, you claim she is Native American.

    How dishonest are you?

    From where I sit, you don’t care if you are an open fraud about the science.

  14. Le Roi du Nord


    The DNA results say she is within a range ( 1/64th to 1/1024th) NA.  You can look it up.  If you can provide something credible that says otherwise, feel free to share.

    little fella:   You are still 0 for 2018.

  15. Kevin Scheunemann

    Nord love how you use fractions to describe how Warren is between .0097%~1.5% non-white. It is a rounding error.

    If Rachel Dolezal takes a DNA test and is 2% black will NAACP issue her an apology when she tried to be “transracial”..

    I enjoy this liberal insanity! Science is a holy grail, until it does not get the result you liberals want!


  16. Le Roi du Nord


    This isn’t about Rachel Dolezal.  Poor try at deflection.

    Do you dispute that 1/64th > 0  ?  Or do you have some alternative math that would disprove?

  17. Kevin Scheunemann

    I dispute being a possible 1.5% of something, makes you whatever you are claiming.

    This only really matters to racist liberals because it raises or lower your victim status, which is how the disgusting liberal lexicon assigns rights.

    Are you that racist?

  18. MjM

    Nort conflates: The DNA results say she is within a range

    Within a range of what?

  19. Le Roi du Nord


    So %, fractions, and math elude you.  How did you ever get a finance degree?

    mjmumbles: See above.  You need to do your own work or else you will have the same difficulties as k.

  20. MjM

    Norts craps: See above. 

    I’m asking you, dumbass.  You said “she is within a range”.  What “range” are you claiming she is within?

  21. jonnyv

    This is pretty simple. Her DNA said she was anywhere from about 6-10 generations removed from Native American. And if she is  1/32 she matches what the CURRENT tribal leader is.

    She isn’t claiming to be part of the current nation. Just that she has ancestry, which she proved.

    I was always told that my father was 1/16th Native American Flathead tribe. Not sure on the specifics. But guess what, I am whiter than a ghost. Now my sister much more resembles that with darker hair and skin. I lean towards my mother’s Norwegian heritage.

    I don’t care what the current tribe SAYS, DNA proves otherwise. And if she were trying to make some monetary claim then she could address it with them. Ultimately she proved herself right that somewhere in her ancestry there was Native American.

    This is a stupid argument now.

  22. Le Roi du Nord


    The range is mentioned above, just as I said.  If you are too lazy to read the info I can’t help you.

  23. MjM

    Nort tap dances again: “The range is mentioned above, just as I said.”

    Afraid to answer, numbnutz? Once again; within a range of what?

  24. jonnyv

    MjM, you can’t win an argument so are you trying to parse out words? “within a range”. That range is greater than ZERO. She proved WITH SCIENCE that she has Native American heritage.  What MORE do you want.

  25. Paul

    No she didn’t, waterhead.

  26. Le Roi du Nord

    little p:

    Yes she did.  Even you could look it up in seconds.

    You are still 0 for 2018.

  27. Paul

    Wrong again, kid raper.
