We must be doing something right:
· With statewide unemployment rate dropping to 4%, Wisconsin has reached full employment.
· Wisconsin has gained more than 190,000 private sector jobs over the past six years.
· Initial and continuing unemployment compensation claims are their lowest point in more than two decades.
· Housing starts are up and so are home prices.
