Nebraska's low unemployment rate is a joke. Yes, if you only have a high school education or only do manual labor, there jobs at call centers, meat processors, retail stores, etc. But, if you are well-educated and have much successful experience, forget Omaha & Nebraska. The unemployment rate for those with graduate degrees is more than 10% in Nebraska, not counting the many thousands who have moved to another state for jobs. In short, a few are rich, such as Buffet, Scott, Fitzgerald. Most are working at $10 or less, fattening the greed superich old men of Omaha.(Whom pay very little in income taxes compared to Iowa & most states.)

You're full of it. They are still hiring at Mutual, Kiewit, Univ. Med Center. You don't have any data to back up your claim. Why is that? It would appear that YOU are the joke.
