Economist Critical of Gov. Walker's Job Claims

Dec 16, 2011

Our series, Project Milwaukee: State of Upheaval draws to a close Friday.

Today, we’re examining how new legislation and a shift in state policies in 2011 have positioned Wisconsin for the future.

In 2010, Gov. Scott Walker ran on a pro-jobs agenda, promising to help create tens of thousands of jobs. He's been struggling to meet his goal.

In this segment, Bob Bach talked about the jobs promises -- and economic reality -- in Wisconsin, with Marc Levine.

Levine is a senior fellow and the founding director of the Center for Economic Development at UW-Milwaukee.

He joined Bob Bach for a special Project Milwaukee broadcast inside the Pabst Theater, at Cudahy's Irish Pub.
