WISCONSIN NEWS ROUNDUP: Both political parties tried to spin Thursday's job report
Both parties tried to make political hay from yesterday's federal report showing that Wisconsin had the 34th-lowest rate of job growth in the year ending in March. The ranking was based on the percentage of each state's growth. Wisconsin jobs grew by one-point-one percent, for a total of 24-thousand-plus. Republican Governor Scott Walker had a rosier view, noting Wisconsin had the 22nd largest increase in actual jobs.
