Government knows no recession


While the private sector continues to get pounded by the current recession, government keeps growing.

A new report by the
Rockefeller Institute of Government states the following:

Private sector employment for the nation as a whole has fallen by 6.9 million jobs between the December 2007 start of the recession and July 2009. Over the same period, state and local government employment has risen by 110 thousand jobs or 0.6 percent, with increases in both state governments and local governments.”

According to the report, during the period April-June 2009 compared to the same period one year ago, private sector employment in Wisconsin decreased by 5.5 percent while state and local government employment in Wisconsin increased 1.8 percent.
