Letter to the Editor: Republicans: Are you really better off?

Robin Rouby Monroe To the editor: So, the 2017 national job numbers are in and despite looking fairly good on the surface, a deeper look into them shows that job growth actually slowed to a six-year low during Donald Trump's first term. Meanwhile in Wisconsin, under Scott Walker and the Republican-controlled legislature's "leadership," Wisconsin's job growth lags behind the majority of states - again. Not only that, but a closer inspection of other numbers reveals that our unemployment rate only looks as good as it does because Wisconsin has the dubious honor of having one of the highest percentages in population loss in the country - again.
