Wisconsin Governor Doyle Statement on May Unemployment Rate
Governor Jim Doyle today issued the following statement regarding the state’s May unemployment rate:
“Since September 2008, this country has seen the most challenging economic times since the Great Depression. Every state has been hit hard by the recession, and Wisconsin is no exception.
“As Governor, my number one priority this year is helping our businesses create jobs and giving our workers the opportunities to get those jobs.
“The tremendous drop in the May unemployment rate and the state’s addition of tens of thousands of jobs reflects our hard work to help communities across the state recover from the national economic crisis. I will continue to do everything possible to make sure that as this national economy turns around, Wisconsin is in a position to come roaring back.”
