Description Walker warned that job losses might again ramp up in Wisconsin if either Barrett or Falk are elected in the June 5 recall because “they will rehash the collective bargaining issue,” scaring off potential employers.

“They don’t want to see the positive foundation reversed for us to go back in time not only to the Doyle days … but even back to what we see in Illinois right now,” Walker said on Sunday’s show, produced in conjunction with WisPolitics.com. “That’s where Tom Barrett, that’s where Kathleen Falk would to take us.”

Walker said Wisconsin’s job picture was improving in January and February of last year, shortly after he took office, only to deteriorate when concern over his budget repair bill led to prolonged massive protests at the state Capitol.

Walker says the political uproar that has continued in the state has contributed to employers being afraid to add jobs.
