WASHINGTON (March 11) - Four states — California, South Carolina, Michigan and Rhode Island — registered unemployment rates above 10 percent in January, and the national rate is expected to hit double digits by year-end.
Michigan's jobless rate jumped to 11.6 percent in January, the highest in the country. The second-highest jobless rate was South Carolina at 10.4 percent. Rhode Island was next at 10.3 percent, which marked an all-time high for the state in federal records dating to 1976.
Government, if you're listening, it's me, Raven.

I did it. I don't have to worry about getting a camper though...have family to stay with if times get tough...
What happened to that btw? Families sticking together and helping one another out?
I have wondered if there are so many people losing their houses, why can't two families hook up together and share expenses? At least they'd have a home.
Unemployment is but one problem. There is also underemployment. Working and not making enough to survive.
Louisiana was the only state to record a monthly drop. Its unemployment rate fell to 5.1 percent in January from 5.5 percent in December.
