Economic outlook will get worse say experts

Economic experts say it will get worse in Wisconsin before it gets better.

The state Labor Department reported an unemployment rate of 6.5 percent Friday, the highest it has been in 14 years.

One Madison economist predicts a continuation of the economic decline we're in right now.

Some are saying the unemployment rate could top 8 percent by the year 2010.

There seems to be no rebound in sight, those same experts warn.

October's numbers were actually worse than had been expected in the Badger State.
