Unemployment rates

Interesting bit of stats, not surprising though. Ya think, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC or papers like the New York Times will report this, ya think?

Here's some news from my favorite blue state with a Democratic governor

The new seasonally adjusted unemployment numbers released last week by the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development may have been flat - remaining at 6.8 percent for the second consecutive month - but the trend in the Gopher State's jobs situation continues to have a comparatively rosier outlook than the nation as a whole.

Here are some Minnesota employment facts at a glance:

Fact #1. The jobless rate has not increased in Minnesota for 14 consecutive months - the seventh longest streak over the past 34 1/2 years dating back to 1976.

The unemployment rate has fallen from 8.4 percent in June 2009 to 6.8 percent in July 2010, or a 19.0 percent decline.

Right now, any good news is welcome no matter who was responsible for it. If Minn is one of those blue states bucking the downward trend, great, Republicans have been in control of the Minn legislature since 2010 and remain in control.
