Wisconsin job growth lags most of America

The sobering report shows the state’s work force has failed to keep up with even the weak growth seen in the rest of the country since the 2001 recession.

Since 1996, the state has outperformed the nation in creating jobs only 27% of the time. That’s a marked reversal from the late 1980s and early 1990s, when the state consistently beat the national growth rates.

From June 2010 to June 2012, the state logged 2.3% job growth, below the 2.8% posted by the country as a whole.
