Wisconsin has major problems in its economy. It has lagged behind most of the other states in business development, income growth and the development of talented young people. Residents of the Badger State have suffered as a result. The state’s share of national income has declined from 2.1% back in 1963 to just 1.7% in 2008.
The Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance says that Wisconsin consistently ranks near the bottom of the fifty states in creation of new companies. Combine these issues and you end up with a lot of people who qualify for the Lifeline free government cell phone program.
