Milwaukee lost the most jobs of any area in the state. I'm sure liberals will blame Walker while placing no blame on Mayor Tom Barrett.

The Milwaukee Metro area is home to, what, over 1,751,000 people. What % of that number is 4,400?

Green Bay is home to 300,000 people. What % of that number is 1,500?

Eau Claire is home to 65,000 people and lost 800.

You've got to look at these numbers in the proper perspective. Break out your calculators, and you'll find Milwaukee Metro has done much better than the others.

By the way, Barrett is the mayor of The City of Milwaukee. He's not the mayor of all cities in the Milwaukee Metro area. You may want to remember that to avoid future botched posts.

It's not a botched post. I can add that among Black males in the CITY OF MILWAUKEE WHERE BARRETT IS MAYOR the unemployment rate is over 40% almost 50%. What is our "great mayor" doing to fix that?

You’re not important, you’re an idiot. We’ve been trying to let you know, as to avoid more embarrassment for your family and friends.(They asked us to tell you)

Actually, of the black male population... eligible and actively looking for work... only 29.5% are unemployed (stat reported in 2010). What jobs are they looking for... when you look at the HS Grad rate below?

http://www.politifact.com/wisconsin/statement...

Beyond that, black male graduate at a rate of 31%, and whites graduate at a rate of 66%(based on a wpri report in 2005).

So, your question is what is Barrett doing to force free USAmericans to take education seriously? I didn't know you were in favor of a dictatorship. Oh, wait! You do support Walker.

Scott Walker was on Upfront With Mike Gousha Sunday, basically, claiming the City of Milwaukee for the job loss numbers. The truth in the story? The MKE Metro Area... an area which hosts several cities and is home to millions... lost 4,400 jobs (not the City of Milwaukee).

What about the other 19,600 jobs lost? Who is to blame for that? There are 5,700,000 Wisconsinites in this state. About 29% of them live in the MKE Metro Area, yet the area accounts for only 18% of the loss.
