We're Number Three!!

It certainly doesn't have anything to do with regulation and taxes.

The four-county region that includes Milwaukee and Waukesha posted the third-biggest percentage decrease in employment among the nation's 38 biggest metropolitan areas last year, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The number of people employed in non-farm labor in metro Milwaukee fell 48,200, or 5.7%, to 793,600 in the 12 months through December.

The only other areas with a steeper percentage decrease were metro Las Vegas, which fell 7.4% to 833,000; and metro Detroit, which fell 6.2% to 1.74 million.

Nope. Regulation and taxes were not a factor.

It was probably the weather, or excessive chipmunks, or maybe werewolves.
