Wisconsin Unemployment Rate Dips on Flat Job Growth

Good news!

Wisconsin’s unemployment rate dipped below 3 percent in February, even as net private sector employment was essentially unchanged during the month.

The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate in Wisconsin was 2.9 percent during the month, the first time it has been below 3 percent since February 2018.

Private sector employment was down by 300, according to data released by the state Department of Workforce Development. Total nonfarm payrolls were down 3,400, led by a 3,100-job drop at the local government level.

    Thank you Gov. Evers! Keep up the good work!

    What has Evers done for this economy besides propsoe economic destroying tax increases?

    Absolutely ridiculous to credit Evers for anything before he has implemented any of his policy.

    Shows your bias.

    Thank you Governor Walker.
    Hey, the liberals claim Obama created this economy, so Evers cannot be credited….ever.

    I love the reaction! It was exactly what I expected to hear. Now you understand the irony when someone says something idiotic about congratulating a politician for something they had no hand in creating.

    What are you talking about?

    All libs did was bitch 1st 4 years of Walker because he did not quite hit 250,000 job promise.

    Libs never gave Walker any credit, but you line up to give Evers credit for nothing.

    Just calling out the liberal insanity.

    Kevin said, “but you line up to give Evers credit for nothing.”

    No, I wasn’t giving Evers credit. I was yanking your chain by saying exactly what you would say had it been Walker. I knew it would get under your skin.

  8. Kevin Scheunemann


    I did not actually give Walker any credit until he implemented his agenda.

    So your point is total fantasyland.

    I think you were serious, and you were hoping not to be called out on it.

  9. Pat

    Oh Kevin, you can be played like a fiddle.
