“Wisconsin is clearing winning a race to the bottom and holds the dubious distinction of being the only state in the nation to lose jobs for six straight months. This is an absolute failure of Governor Walker and the Republican-led legislature. Where Wisconsin used to lead the nation in educational performance, we now lead in $1.6 billion in cuts to public education.
