WEDC's Self-Reported Job Impact by Assembly District

As released in Citizen Action's report - "UNEVEN DEVELOPMENT: WEDC's Claimed Jobs Impact Leaves Many Areas of Wisconsin Behind" - shows a stark contrast in Scott Walker's economic develop agency WEDC between impacted jobs in Democratic and Republican Assembly Districts. The major overview:

  • While one Assembly district has over 6,000 jobs supposedly projected, 14 Assembly districts have none whatsoever. 
  • In 22 Assembly districts WEDC claims to have impacted over 1,000 jobs, while 25 districts have less than 100 supposedly impacted.
  • Republican Assembly districts have close to twice as many jobs projected as Democratic Assembly districts (86% more, or 389 more jobs projected on average).

 

  • Republican Leaders in the Assembly have a disproportionate number of jobs impacted in their districts.
    • Republican Majority Leader Bill Kramer's district features jobs impacted at a rate over 8 times higher than the average Republican district.
    • Republican Speaker Robin Vos and Joint Finance Committee Co-Chair John Nygren have a disproportionate number of jobs impacted compared both with average Republican and average Democratic districts
