17. I don't

 

why the media doesn't check Governor Snyders' claims about Indiana. I just checked the unemployment rates in Indiana since their law was enacted back in February. It was 8.4 back in February and 8.0 now, but that number has been up and down. Its lowest point was at 7.9 but went up ever since that low point several months ago. And the jobs, that he is talking about, only 30,000 or more has been approved or agreed to. The other 61,000 has not even been guaranteed depending on the definition of pipeline. Indiana could probably be trying to attract these jobs, and some maybe temporary jobs, such as construction projects. That does not mean these are high wage or full time jobs. A lot of right to work states attract low paying jobs, and many are just seasonal jobs for minimun wages or where employers contract with contractors for labor. I'm talking about from organizations like Labor Ready, where they take a significant amount of your pay, just to work. The employers usually make a hefty profit for cheap labor. It is business friendly alright. you don't get benefits or anything. So Snyder is talking about from february to present, with only 31,000 jobs approved, out of 91,000 in indiana's pipeline during that period? What boom is he refering to?
