It’s Working: Four Days, Four Ways Our Reforms Have Improved Wisconsin: Day 4

Day four:  Job creation and moving our state forward

Watertown…  With the recall election just one day away, Sen. Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) released the final part of his “Four Days, Four Ways” campaign, showcasing the positive effects of the bold reforms implemented over the past year and a half.  Sen. Fitzgerald previously highlighted our state’s improved finances, improved business climate, and how the reforms have put more money in taxpayers’ pockets.  Today’s positive effect: creating jobs and moving Wisconsin forward.

“Wisconsin businesses created more than 23,000 private sector jobs last year, and thousands more so far in 2012,” said Fitzgerald.  “Businesses are beginning to invest in Wisconsin again because of our positive reforms.”  As further evidence that the reforms are working, Wisconsin’s unemployment rate is at its lowest level since 2008 and unemployment claims have fallen to pre-recession levels.

“While these changes have led to positive results throughout our state, we still have work to do,” said Fitzgerald.  “I look forward to getting back to work to keep Wisconsin moving forward.  We have the opportunity to bring in thousands of family supporting jobs and billions of dollars of investment to our state by passing needed reforms to our state’s mine permitting laws, and we can encourage more investment in Wisconsin by passing venture capital legislation.”
