Scott Walker has done a lot of bad things in his time as Wisconsin governor, but the big issue, for anyone who remains on the fence after his union-busting and his equal pay enforcement repeal and his voter suppression, has to be his poor jobs record. Dogged by Wisconsin having the worst job losses in the country under Walker, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics numbers, Walker found numbers he liked better and released them early, preventing comparisons with other states since those numbers haven't yet been released.

Wisconsin voters have to go to the polls with this in mind: Setting aside everything else, Scott Walker has not been good for his state's jobs economy. In a not-great national economy, Walker's Wisconsin has stood out as the worst, despite all of Walker's bragging about the 250,000 jobs he was going to bring to the state. A vote for Walker on June 5 is a vote to extend Wisconsin's jobs drought.

Please give $4 to help Tom Barrett defeat Scott Walker and end Wisconsin's jobs drought.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
