MI unemployment increases
"Michigans unemployment rate floated back above the 11% level in August, reflecting the continuing weakness in the nationwide economy.

Michigans seasonally adjusted unemployment rate increased in August by three-tenths of a percentage point to 11.2%, the Michigan Department of Technology, Management & Budget said this afternoon."

2. "reflecting the continuing weakness in the nationwide economy"- oh really?

Or could it be because of public-sector job losses? That could be why Michigan's unemployment rate has gone up considerably in recent months, while the national rate has barely budged.

4. ...Rs will do a well-maned-moron media blitz and pound the truth back into their lies.
It's frustrating to watch what we love, wither and die before our eyes.
