An economic forecast by Gov. Scott Walker's own administration predicts that Wisconsin will fall far short of adding the 250,000 new private-sector jobs by 2015 that the governor promised as a key part of his successful election campaign.
The Department of Revenue report released Friday predicts that by 2014, the state will have added only 136,000 jobs in the private sector compared with 2010. The job growth estimate was down 43,000 from the department's previous report released in June.
A top administrator at the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development left her position this week, an agency spokesman confirmed Friday, marking the agency's third high-profile departure in less than a year.
Rozek is the department's second top official to leave this week. Secretary Scott Baumbach resigned Monday after being in the position just four months. His predecessor, Manny Perez, resigned in May after five months in the post.

Those jobs are gone, and they're gone specifically because of Walker's decisions.
Do you think that public schools in WI or anywhere do a good job of training students for the workforce? I'm not so sure. It is even less clear that paying teachers more (or hiring more administrators) makes any improvement on that front either.
