Milwaukee Area Lost 5,100 Jobs in June

The four-county area that covers Milwaukee reportedly lost 5,100 jobs in June according to the Department of Workforce Development which is a 4,300 difference from May when only 800 jobs were lost. The DWD tracks 12 metro areas in the state and the Milwaukee area is doing the worst by far:
Of the 12 metro areas tracked by the agency, six showed declines in seasonally adjusted employment in the past month, agency data showed. They are Sheboygan, which lost 500 jobs; Green Bay, 300; Racine and Wausau, both 200; and Janesville, 100.

Over the past 12 months, metro Milwaukee - encompassing, Milwaukee, Waukesha, Washington and Ozaukee counties - lost 15,600 jobs, the most among the 12 metropolitan areas tracked by the agency.

Madison, by contrast, added 200 in the month and lost 3,100 over the past year.
