From a report about November job losses in Wisconsin:
"The latest jobs report shows that 14,600 jobs, including 11,700 in the private sector, were lost last month. At the same time, the unemployment rate dropped from 7.7 percent to 7.3 percent."
Your data are old. Those numbers were revised and adjusted to 1,500. Less than 1/1000th of 1% net job loss over a 30 day period.

The two numbers are derived from diffrent surveys. You have to look at both in totality to get a "feel" of the state of the job market. The idea is to look at trends
If you want an idea of trends here you go:
In 2009 -- Under Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle -- the state suffered a net loss of 121,000 jobs -- 84,700 jobs were lost during the first four months of the year, including 24,700 in April alone.
in 2011 Wisconsin gained a net # of jobs -- 21,400
