Letter-No need for recall

Dear Editor,

I was at home on May 5, and the phone rang. It was a recorded message from Ron Kind urging me to vote to recall Governor Walker. The reason being that Wisconsin was dead last of all the states in job growth. I was shocked, you would expect to see destitute people on every corner selling apples.

So I did some investigating, this is what I found. The Bureau of Labor Statistics lists 35 states that have worse unemployment than Wisconsin. That puts Wisconsin in the top 15 out of 50 states for best employment, I don't think that's too bad, no recall needed here. What's really interesting is, the top 10 states with the worst unemployment, two of them California and Florida are on Kiplinger's Top 10 States that added the most jobs lists!
