it sort of does though, because it's an average.

North Dakota is at 3%, Nevada is almost 12%
North Dakota I can see very low population and Nevada I would bet definitely is higher than 12% in reality since there is people who no longer are eligible for unemployment benefits and are now part of the entitlement society.

Keep trying to convince yourself things are getting better. But just wait a fire strom is coming and they're is nothing we can do about it. Why in the hell people let this creep Obama have a second term is beyond me. It just makes me so angry that people that voted for him are and will be just as much to blame for this country failing.

there is no convincing, they are hiring here and yes alot of it has to with Indiana being in the black which is a plus and why companies are relocating here from the surrounding states because they have deficits and revenue problems.

Companies avoid states that have financial problems. It takes a lot to pack your bags and leave a state once you're anchored down. States with budget and debt problems often look for money outlets to ease their pain, and those outlets are businesses.

not for companies, I have seen plenty of people packup and go and anyone that stayed chose to be collateral damage. If you need or want your job your going to move or find another one, look at Kennesaw, he moved south for his job and an example.

This is fine depending on what your values are. But why should one have to leave their home in order to work? That doesn't sound logical. Even less logical is having to leave your country for the same reason.

Wouldn't it be better to have a state government such as we have here in Ohio that attracts businesses and creates a business friendly environment so that all residents can stay because they have a job?

that is whats wrong with Cleveland & Detroit and why they prefer section 8 housing and Food Stamps and feel they should not have to leave their home in order to find work somewhere else if need to be and if we all did that this country would be in a mess worse than it is now. During the Great Depression that is what normal people did, they moved to find work they did wait for work to come to them and that is what is wrong with people of today, they want to be dependent on the government.

I see work all the time posted around here. The problem is that people are so comfortable living on the dole, few venture out of the house to see what's out there. If a person really wants to work, they will work, no question about it. I don't believe that people are on these social programs because they absolutely can't find a job even though they are trying their hardest.

People during the great depression didn't have food stamps, HUD and Medicaid to rely on. They moved because they had to. You don't work, you don't eat.

thats my point, they went out and found jobs that they could sustain a livable wage to support themselves and their families without government assistance.
