We’re number 1, we’re number 1, ………..Hey, wait a minute, This time being number one really sucks! My home state of Michigan is THE worst place in America if you’re looking for work.
From The CNN (The Clinton News Network):
If you’ve rewritten that résumé several times and sent out dozens of applications but your job search still shows no promise, you might not be the problem.
One frequently overlooked but critical factor in finding a new job is your state’s unemployment rate. You can have the experience and skills of an employer’s dream, but they won’t do you any good if there just aren’t enough jobs available.
The unemployment rate is the percentage of job seekers in the work force who are still looking for work. The higher the percentage, the more difficult it is to find a job. The national unemployment rate is 5 percent, based on the most recent data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
If you’re looking for a job, you should see how your state compares to the rest of the country. Here are the 10 worst states to find work ranked by their unemployment rates.
Unemployment rate: 7.6 percent
Mean annual wage: $41,230
Top industry: Trade, transportation and utilities (18.4 percent)***
In 2006, with a huge unemployment rate and an economy plunging down the toilet, Michigan voters re-elected a Governor with the worst jobless rate in the ENTIRE country. Perhaps too many Michigan voters were smoking pot or doing meth on election day? How in the hell else can you explain such stupidity? Have Michigan voters become such idiots that they voted based on the pure propaganda by the Michigan Democratic Party and not with their own wallets? Thanks Detroit!
