The unemployment rate fell in Wisconsin last month, but so did the number of jobs. Wisconsin lost 3,900 jobs in the private sector – the sixth month of job loss in a row since his budget took effect, says the Wisconsin State Journal.

But there are a few positions open in Wisconsin, namely doing the thankless task of scanning the 1.9 million signatures to recall Governor Walker and his second-in-command. From the Wisconsin Reporter:

And speaking of temp jobs, the board has had a hard time filling the petition review positions, mainly because too many prospective employment candidates have signed recall petitions targeting Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch.

If you signed a petition, you can’t get a job scanning them. And since so many people signed, the pool of potential applicants is small. Republicans and independents, come on down?
