More bad news that didn’t happen

The list of awful things not happening in Wisconsin grew longer this week, with word that half the new jobs created in the United States during June were created here.
That’s not a typo.  The entire U.S. economy created a net 18,000 new jobs in June.  Wisconsin created almost 13,000 in the private sector and shed about 3,000 in the public sector for a net gain of about 9,500.
It’s been some time since Democrats have bothered trying to win elections other than by telling voters their Republican opponents want to abolish workers’ rights, destroy the schools and favor big corporations over the jobs of working class families.
Well, last fall Republicans won and what’s happened?  Now, government workers have the right to forgo unionization if they wish. Layoffs have been avoided. In fact, the school districts laying off teachers are doing things the union’s way; those using reforms provided by Republicans are hiring more teachers with the money they’ve saved. And where is the highest percentage of this year’s new jobs to be found? In construction and manufacturing.
Judged on that basis, the so-called “Republican war on the working class” isn’t going too well.
