Will Gov. Scott Walker Meet His Promise of 250,000 Jobs?
The governor has overseen job growth, but has only netted about 15 percent of his stated goal for his first term.
Gov. Scott Walker is at the halfway mark of his first term, a term earned in part on a pointed campaign promise to create 250,000 new jobs by 2015.
According to Politifact, Wisconsin has netted just over 37,000 new jobs since Walker took office. It’s an increase, but still more than 212,000 away from his stated goal.
