(On yesterday’s post I failed to mentioned NYC unemployment rates see below)
New York was not on the
list, and some people wondered where NY fall on the list, after checking with
BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics):
New York’s Unemployment as of July 2008 rate is 5.2%
which means is over 5.0% and if you are looking for a job you want to be
at a state where the unemployment rate is lower than 5.0%.
