Nevada maintained an unemployment rate of 14.4 percent in September, the highest unemployment rate of any state and the highest unemployment rate in the history of Nevada, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a division of the U.S. Department of Labor.Help Sharron Angle put this arrogant economic wrecking ball out of commission on November 2.
Nevada’s unemployment rate first hit 14.4 percent in August and stayed there for the month of September, according to data released by the Labor Department on Friday.
Since Sen. Harry Reid (D.-Nev.) became Senate Majority Leader in January 2007, the unemployment rate in Nevada has not declined in any single month. Sometimes in the period since January 2007 it has remained at the same level from one month to the next--such as from this August to September, when it maintained its record level of 14.4 percent--but it has never declined.
