    I'm curious, what is the unemployment rate in the city or county where you live.
    No need to state the location, just the number.

    11.3% where I live.

    Officially, it's almost 15% here on the Treasure Coast of FL, but it 'feels' like it's getting better recently.

    No, a majority of the plants are moving to another city ... thanks to our unions being asshats and the huge increase in cost of business here due to regulations. They finalized it earlier this week, and most of the machinists will be out of work now.
