NOW: Gov. Walker tours Metro Market in Milwaukee, touts the state’s growing job force

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Governor Scott Walker stopped in Milwaukee to tout the state's growing job force and to get a closer look at the investment local supermarkets are making in Wisconsin.

"It's an exciting time in the state of Wisconsin. We've had 6 straight months of under 3% unemployment. Prior to this year, that was the all time low. We've never been below that, now we're below that. More people in the workforce this year than ever before, so we're excited to see that companies like Roundy's are continuing to make investments and continuing to put more good people, again over 12 and a half thousand people, to work in the state of Wisconsin and great opportunity to come by and see what's going on," 

The Governor was at Metro Market in Milwaukee Thursday morning touring the revamped store and praising the $300 million investment from Roundy's and Kroger.

He applauded their continued commitment to the state.

Governor Walker is taking on State Superintendent Tony Evers in the November election.
