8-12-21, Blue States Lagging Behind

The latest unemployment numbers reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics show that Democrat-controlled states and the District of Columbia have the top ten highest rates locked down. The report covers June and shows that the state has the highest New Mexico rate at 7.9 percent.

Connecticut, Nevada, New York, Hawaii, California, New Jersey, Illinois, D.C., and Pennsylvania are the following nine. All of these high unemployment states are continuing their participation in the federal government’s enhanced unemployment benefits program, paying beneficiaries $300 per week in addition to the state benefits they are receiving.

The nation’s lowest unemployment rate is found in Nebraska at 2.5 percent. The rest of the ten states with the lowest rates are Utah, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Idaho, Vermont, Alabama, Kansas, Montana, and Oklahoma.
