Data kept by the U.S. Department of Labor shows that at least 11,331 Wisconsin jobs have been outsourced to other countries since Walker’s scandal-ridden "jobs" agency, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, was launched July 1, 2011.
That doesn't even include companies that moved out of the state, left a city for a suburb, or even all the companies that sent jobs overseas but didn't tell the Dept of Labor.
With so many Wisconsin workers struggling to find family supporting jobs, our state and federal governments ought to be focused on creating an economy where everyone who wants a good job can get one. Shamefully, elected leaders who are supposed to work for us often aide and abet corporate outsourcers, helping them rig the economy against average people. They vote for trade deals which make it easier for multinational corporations to ship more of our good jobs overseas. In Wisconsin Scott Walker gives huge subsidies and tax giveaways to unpatriotic CEOs engaged in outsourcing our jobs.
