MADISON, Wis. - Mary Burke says she has a plan to create jobs in Wisconsin, but the Democratic candidate for governor isn't committing to a specific number.
Burke was the headliner Tuesday at a question-and-answer session at Marquette University. She said her goal is to make Wisconsin a top-10 economy, but she declined to forecast how many people would get jobs under her latest job-creation plan.
She says she'd define a top-10 economy according to rankings of job creation.
When asked whether the ranking could be misleading if the new jobs are all minimum-wage positions, she said she'd also take wages into account.
Republican Gov. Scott Walker had pledged to add 250,000 private-sector jobs by the end of this year. That mark now appears unlikely.
Walker's campaign says Burke's plan simply copies Walker's most successful tactics.
Burke released a video about the jobs plan Tuesday.
