Economist Critical of Gov. Walker's Job Claims
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.
