    Unemployment rates fall in two-thirds of US states - Boston.com

    WASHINGTON—Unemployment rates fell in two-thirds of U.S. states last month, evidence that modest economic growth is boosting hiring in most areas of the country.

    And in many states, unemployment has fallen well below the national average, which was 8.1 percent last month. Rates were lower than 7 percent in 22 states in April. That compares to only 13 states in April 2011.

    The Labor Department said Friday that unemployment rates dropped in 37 states in April, the most in three months. Unemployment rose in 5 states and was unchanged in eight.

    Nationally, the unemployment rate has fallen a full percentage point since August. Employers have added a million jobs over the past five months, although the pace of hiring slowed in March and April.

    According to folks like edthecynic....

    Scenario 1 - 100 people have jobs, 25 are unemployed.
    Scenario 2 - 95 people have jobs, 30 are unemployed, of those 30 - 5 gave up and are living on less.

    According to these halfwits...Scenario 2 is better than scenario 1

    If YOU can put words in my mouth then I can do the same to you.

    Scenario 1 - 100 people have jobs, 25 are unemployed.
    Scenario 2 - 95 people have jobs, 25 are unemployed, 5 Boomers retired.

    According to these halfwits like YOU...in Scenario 2, DISCOURAGED workers increased by 5 and nobody retired. :eusa_liar:

    Most of the people dropping out of the labor force are retiring Boomers. Are you saying the American people are not FREE to retire and must work until they drop dead on the job?

    Don't hold your breath...all he will find is Kool-Aid articles with no data.
    As soon as he/she looks into it and realizes that retired people ARE NOT A PART OF THE JOB PARTICIPATION RATE...he will sly away for another day.
