    I can't find any breakdown of the percentage of Private Sector vs. Public Sector jobs created.

    If they had been government jobs, the democrats wouldn't be so angry.

    The corrected number is actually 23,300 - although I can't find any breakdown of private vs. public. I think this guy is erroneously reporting on the initial number which was 33,000 jobs lost.

    Ironically, Barrett is more ticked off about the timing of the release than anything. He says the figure can't be verified prior to the recall election date.

    Secondly, sadly Democrats are pointing out the fact this is well below the 62,500 Walker needs to create to meet his 250,000 job promise; lets ignore the fact the state lost private sector jobs under Dole. There was a reason only 1 in 4 college graduates from Wisconsin stayed in the state - the job market

    Bottom line is that he got the financial house back in order. That alone is enough to piss off democrats. You can't ask the people for more, if you can't show some kind of crisis or need..
