We may be down, and at times, we may be out. But never bet against the resilience of the American people and our never-say-die attitude!
And unless you’re a Republican, in which case your main objective is to do everything and anything possible to make sure the poor and middle class suffer, this should be some pretty good news!
And to those Republicans I say this…
Unemployment rates fell in 43 states in November, the most number of states to report such declines in eight years.
The falling state rates reflect the brightening jobs picture nationally. The U.S. unemployment rate fell sharply in November to 8.6 percent, the lowest since March 2009. The economy has generated 100,000 or more jobs five months in a row — the first time that’s happened since 2006, before the Great Recession.
Only three states reported higher unemployment rates in November, the Labor Department said Tuesday. Four states showed no change.
Things are getting better Republicans. Your efforts to keep the people down are not working.
