Walker predicts boost in job growth in wake of recall

Gov. Scott Walker predicted today that with the uncertainty of the recall finished, the state will see accelerated job growth, and said he aims to work with his cabinet and members of both parties to facilitate that.

"I'm convinced that ... today is the first day of the takeoff of job growth and prosperity in Wisconsin," told employees at a Steelwind Industries, a heavy metal fabrication shop in Oak Creek.

He said in survey after survey, employers were worried about the election, and with certainty his reforms will stay in place employers will add "unbelievable amounts of new jobs" in the weeks and months ahead.

Walker said a focus on jobs will help unite the state.

"That's what more than anything will bring people together," Walker said. "Because jobs are not Republican jobs, they're not Democrat jobs, they're just Wisconsin jobs."

In a cabinet meeting planned for later today, Walker said he will work to find ways agencies can help boost jobs outside of the legislative process.

He will follow up, he said, with an event in which all state legislators are invited to talk over brats, burgers and beer about ways that they can work together.

Talking with reporters after the event, Walker said the election sends a message that voters will stand behind leaders who are committed to making tough decisions.

But Walker said the process also taught him that it's important to include more people at the table.

'While the final product is good, fixing things is good, so is making sure that you talk about it and do more to include people in the process," Walker said.

After Walker finished his speech, he shook hands with employees and took a tour of the plant.
