A Closer Look at Unemployment

Saturday, May 24th, 2014 Leave a comment

From The Big Picture:

The states with the highest unemployment rate are Nevada (8 percent) and Rhode Island (8.3 percent). Nevada was hit especially hard by the housing collapse and Rhode Island has been fighting a loss of manufacturing industries, fishing and tourism woes, high taxes and a state government some observers have described as corrupt. Illinois comes in third (7.9 percent) — its deficit issues and pension headaches are well known — and California is fourth (7.8 percent).
