E-Update from the Desk of Governor Scott Walker (03/06/15)

E-update from Gov. Walker

A Big Step for Worker Freedom
Hello Everyone,
This week, we have taken a big step toward worker freedom in Wisconsin. Just this morning, members of the Assembly followed the Senate in passing Freedom to Work legislation. This will allow workers to choose whether or not they want to join a union and gives employers another compelling reason to expand or move their business to Wisconsin. Thanks to the members of the Legislature for their work on this bill, and I look forward to signing it into law on Monday.

Wisconsin Manufacturers and
Commerce (WMC) Business Day
On Wednesday, I had the opportunity to speak with business leaders and job creators here in Madison at the Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce annual Business Day about our work making state government more efficient, effective, and accountable.

on Wednesday at the Wisconsin Manufacturing and Commerce Business Day.
Over the past four years, our sensible reforms have helped put power back into the hands of Wisconsin’s hardworking taxpayers, thus allowing more people to live their piece of the American Dream. Our budget proposal builds upon this success to foster growth and opportunity by investing in worker training and lowering the tax burden on citizens, which will ultimately lead to more freedom and prosperity for all Wisconsinites.

Wisconsin Unemployment Drops to 5 Percent
This week, we received confirmation that our tough, but prudent, reforms continue to have a positive effect on Wisconsin’s job market.
Wisconsin's unemployment rate dropped to 5.0 percent, its lowest point since August 2008, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' (BLS) preliminary state employment and unemployment estimates for January 2015. Our 5.0 percent unemployment rate is significantly lower than the national unemployment rate of 5.7 percent in January.
According to BLS, Wisconsin added more than 40,000 private sector jobs since January 2014. Our employment is up, unemployment is down, and our labor force is growing, which means more freedom and prosperity for people across our state.
