Gov. Walker: More Job Growth

Scott Walker talks about jobs coming to Waukesha area in his weekly radio address.

Scott Walker once a week.  Audio files and a written transcript of this radio address can be accessed online.

Here is the transcript from this Thursday’s radio address, which is titled More Job Growth:

This week, we saw another example of how we're turning things around in Wisconsin and why we’re headed in the right direction.  I was proud to announce that Connecture, Inc. a software company currently based in Atlanta Georgia,  One hundred high-paying professional technology jobs will result from this move over the next three years. 

Information about the open positions and recruiting open houses can be found at www.conjecture.com/jobs or by calling 262-522-4815.

Adding Connecture to the state's economy will build off of our hub of medical technology development and innovation.  Wisconsin has many great assets to offer employers from other states: dedicated and hardworking employees, a state government that supports private sector growth, a great infrastructure network - just to name a few.

This is just one of the many good stories taking place in Wisconsin. We are working tirelessly to recruit and retain employers who can provide our people with good-paying, family sustaining jobs. 

Moving forward, I will continue to advance pro-growth policies that help employers create jobs.  I am optimistic that we will be able to attract more jobs by encouraging other businesses to relocate in our great state. 

Employers who relocate to Wisconsin not only help those who directly obtain a job with the company, but also serve as a supply chain for other businesses and ultimately result in increased economic activity for area communities.

Working together, we can get our state working again. We can move Wisconsin forward.

What I would not agree on is that all fascist systems are Leftist and that socialism is a movement toward fascism. From Wiki-- There is a running dispute among scholars about where along the left/right spectrum that fascism resides.[22][23][24][25] Fascism was founded during World War I by Italian national syndicalists who combined left-wing and right-wing political views, but Italian Fascism gravitated to the right in the early 1920s.[26][27] Benito Mussolini in 1919 described fascism as a syncretic movement that would strike "against the backwardness of the right and the destructiveness of the left".[28][29] Italian Fascists described fascism as a right-wing ideology in the political program The Doctrine of Fascism: "We are free to believe that this is the century of authority, a century tending to the 'right,' a fascist century." If you haven't noticed, we do not have a purely capitalist economic system. We have a mixed system with the gov't using/providing resources for the entire population. The fear mongering that we are sliding toward either Soviet Russia or Nazi Germany is just that--fear mongering. The mythos of this culture is so steeped with Individualism that we freak at the thought of being coerced to care for the needy amongst us less it infringe on our "liberty", which I would point out as a Christian pastor has somehow trumped "compassion" as the supreme moral standard of the day.

We might be on our way to Canada or--horrors!--Sweden, but that's about it. Neither the extreme Left or extreme Right are going to push us into a fascism of any order.

Back in the 1960's, when Maier was Mayor of Milwaukee, he had an officer sitting in a car outside in home, near 35th & Silver Spring... I'd guess Mayor Barrett has the same 'service'... I know he lives in the Bayview area...( perhaps I should go visit the area and find out for sure... ) That said, there are NO protests out Mayor Barrett's home, on a daily basis...

How many private sector union workers are there in the state of WI? How many public sector union workers are there in the state of WI? How many non-union workers are there in the state of WI? I think you will find the number of non-union workers contributing in the form of taxes is greater than union workers I am non-union, working in a factory, supplying goods and services to union shops, although that is changing, as some of those union shops, have been closed and moved to 'right-to-work' state(s)... Unions are losing membership and influence in the work place...

As for Walker NOT being in Madison as often as you would like, what doe sit really matter? Isn't the goal of being governor to improve the state you 'inherited' ? Did you know the former governor of Illinois, Baggo, did most of his work in an office in Chicago? Baggo would go to Springfield ONLY as needed? IN fact when he was arrested, it was in Chicago....
