Manufacturing is really taking off in our state. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Wisconsin added 21,300 manufacturing jobs from July 2017 to July 2018. That ranks us second in the nation, just behind Texas which added 21,400 in the same time period. We also rank 6th nationally in percent grown in the industry over the last three months.
Not long ago, the naysayers said manufacturing was over in Wisconsin. They were wrong.
Thanks to careful budgeting and common-sense reforms, we've dramatically improved the business climate in Wisconsin. We've gone from unemployment higher than 9% to our record-setting streak of lower than 3% unemployment. That's a remarkable turnaround!
