Job Creation

This will probably be interesting only to policy wonks and a national audience concerned for the future of the United States. It will drive leftists, liberals, Rahmulans and Obama supporters absolutely bat-shit crazy:
  • Earlier this month, analysts were dismayed by the nation’s anemic job creation numbers. On Thursday, state officials were pleased as they released data that showed more than half of the net new jobs added in the US in June came from Wisconsin.

    “We have made difficult decisions in our state, but they are beginning to payoff,” said Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R). “The national job figures remind us that we can not rest after one month of good news; while there will be ups and downs along the way, we must help lead the nation to recovery.”

    Using seasonally adjusted data, the 12,900 private-sector jobs created in June marks the largest one-month gain in Wisconsin since September 2003. The state’s net new job gain for June is 9,500 jobs, more than half of the nation’s net gain of 18,000 jobs for the same month.
Interesting. We wonder how many more jobs Illinois lost during the same period.

I wonder how many of those "new private sector" jobs are just summer jobs in Wisconsin Dells and other resort areas?

Well, you just lost a few more to the criminals. Rahm and ALL the useless aldermen voted to have prioners clean the animal cages at the pound. Good idea, right? Yeah, but we have to pay the county $235,000 to administer the program, per year. Thats city government paying county government. That $235,000 could have put how many people to work, part time for a year???? Its the jobs that pay people and the people that spend the money to create more jobs. Not taking money from one government, bypassing the people to pay another government. And every alderman thought that was a great idea??? When will the revolts start?

That's nothing. Quinn lost more than four times that number of jobs for Illinois. Wisconsin just picked up some of our workers.

Democrats are smarter than anyone else because they are liberals. And liberals know everything. They must be right because they have a social conscience.

We should be taxed more so that illegals can open businesses and the poor can have more children, eat for free, be housed for free and get free medical coverage. They should also send their children to school for free and feed them there.

Liberal democrats are great at running government. They're tough on criminals too.

Illinois 3rd Worst in Nation for Private Sector Job Loss

Every recession/depression ends with businesses making a choice; whether to automate or hire. They always choose automate. A National Geographic program showed a can factory which has 16 workers and produces 2M cans a day. Anyone remember American Can Co. in Maywood?

What is the BGA Payroll Database?
Are you curious how much cash your public officials make? Follow the money.

With the BGA's searchable database of public payrolls across Illinois, Indiana, Missouri and Wisconsin, you can easily access information relating to the spending of state and local units of government. This database is free for anyone to use, and we hope you will consider supporting the BGA in the costly effort to provide this valuable resource.

I run my business on a cell phone with a 219 area code and use a mail drop in Indiana for my papers. I'm stuck with the house until I decide to walk away from it.

OT-Sorry, just read this:

Grievance? This is a violation of the HIPPA Act! I don't understand why we need to report our illness to the watch commander when we have a medical section to report it to. Why I am sick is NOT Department Business. Nobody should know that. File the HIPPA complaint!

I agree. What if it is a highly personal reason--you don't want it all over the station! I even hate to call when I have the flu and am throwing up and have a 102 fever, because it's embarassing!

As of last week 102 companies have announced they ar moving their operations to Indiana. Light manufacturing and trucking companies along the two Interstate corridors only have to move less than 120 miles to save more than 5% on their taxes, not including workmen's comp and insurance costs...

Did Quinn request this just for show knowing Obamamasama would say no? Just askin'. Hard to believe he asked for something like this:

Feds say no to Quinn on tightening Medicaid proof

July 19, 2011|By Ray Long | Clout Street

Illinois wanted to tighten up the way it reviews whether people are eligible for Medicaid coverage, but the Obama administration has refused to go along, an action a state Republican leader called “absolutely ridiculous.”

One of the long-sought goals of Illinois Medicaid reforms enacted this year was to require more proof that people lived in Illinois and that their incomes were not too high to qualify for the state and federal health care program for the poor.

Good point, but IL is a tourist destination too, and we're the third worst state for losing jobs in the country.

I think it's a bit premature to be claiming some sort of political party victory on the jobs issue.

At first blush the 9,500 jobs being created seems impressive I'll admit.

However can we trust that number and if we can what does it really tell us about the economy?

For example what kind of jobs were created?

Full time, Part time, min-wage, temps, or living wage career positions? All jobs are not alike.

All we know so far is that the Wis. Governor is touting his tourism industry for creating jobs.

So what kind of jobs are those?

Maids, hotel clerks, waitresses, Summer Fest concession cashiers and cooks, etc...?

There was also talk of a Wis. jobs program for ex-cons.

The rumor goes something like that you privatize some public work jobs like say garbage collection and then you fire all the public workers doing that and hire the ex-cons ....or better yet make the convicts do that work with no pay as part of their punishment.

You created jobs but how much trickle down economic benefit will you get from that one has to wonder?

Oh and you fire and layoff the law abiding citizens and put them on unemployment or welfare to make room for the ex-con jobs while the unions are busted in the process right?

You want a job? Go directly to jail first!

Furthermore let's remember these are politicians touting the claims.

A favorite catch phrase often heard refers too the "tax and spend" party.

Well, the Wis. Governor while arguing not to raise taxes is redistributing the wealth nonetheless.

I mean are you really in favor of busting the unions by taking away their collective bargaining rights and then giving the money saved away to corporations like $70 million dollars of tax breaks to Mercury Marine if they agree to create 800 jobs over the next five years?

Isn't that just a redistribution of wealth?

Do the math. 800 jobs, $70 million dollars in tax breaks.

The taxpayers are paying the wages for Mercury Marine.

Meanwhile the politicians will point how the company is growing and look how successful it is -- and they all are!

Don't be a chump.

Where are these jobs coming from and who is ultimately funding them. I'm not buying the political illusion just yet... sorry.

What industry/business are growing in Wis? Walker says tourism

People, many of them holding college degrees are asking this same question in Wis while the political apparatus touts over 30,000 positions posted as open in a Wis. jobs development website -- the politicians pull out the tired old line "they need to be retrained" to match the positions that are available.

I guess that means we retrain the MBA holders, the people with bachelors is engineering and science, the nursing students, etc. how to make beds and pour coffee for the tourist eh?

Remember Block 37?:


Crain’s) — The 17-story office building at Block 37 is under contract to be sold for $187 million to the Israeli firm that recently bought the new Barneys New York store in the Gold Coast.


Property & Building Corp., a subsidiary of IDB Group, disclosed it had agreed to pay the price for a Chicago office tower but did not identify the building. Lee Golub, executive vice-president of Golub & Co., confirmed to Crain’s that it is 22 W. Washington St., a 439,434-square-foot facility that houses the headquarters of Morningstar Inc.


Mr. Golub, whose Chicago-based firm built the tower in 2008 and still owns the property, declined to comment further. The price works out to about $426 a square foot.

I am in full agreement. The key word they used was that they counted seasonal workers. Seasonal workers should not be counted as an actual job since it won't be there in two months.

Looks like another American Business will be falling from the Obama caused-Depression soon. Mancari Chrysler on 95th in Oak lawn, only a few cars left in the lot. Anyone know the situation ? They've been in business for 50 some years, till the Commie-in-Chief came into power..

I'm from Wi...most of those jobs are seasonal summer jobs. Mercury Marine is hiring 10-13 bucks an hour (others on the same line make 20 something an hour).

The bashing on public employees continues, we'll be lucky if the Gov doesn't lay all of us off.
