As the MacIver Institute reports today:
Wisconsin has 137,372 more private sector jobs than when Governor Scott Walker first took office in January 2011, according to the most recent data available from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which puts him past the halfway point towards his goal of creating 250,000 private sector jobs in his first term.
This information was contained in the BLS's Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages. That census includes detailed information from more than 96 percent of employers. This is much more accurate than monthly jobs' reports, which are compiled by surveying a fraction of employers.
Although Governor Walker has already won re-election once, he is in fact only about halfway through his first term in office, so the creation of far more than 125,000 private sector jobs (thereby putting him ahead of schedule to make good on his famous pledge) is obviously a newsworthy development.
Except that the MacIver Institute is the only outlet reporting it.
Remember folks, media bias is far more potent in the stories that aren't covered than in the ones that are.
