    I just read this article and want to post it for others. I find it fascinating that the states with the lowest unemployment have high levels of agriculture, manufacturing, food processing, etc.....in other words they make things!! Hmmmmm.

    10 States With Ridiculously Low Unemployment -- And Why

    Every U.S. state experienced job losses during the recent downturn, but thanks to the right mix of industries, natural resources, and skilled workers, some states have a far lower unemployment rate than the 9.5% national average.

    Want to crack the jobs problem? Let's start by studying these sources of American strength...

    First, a broad look at America's situation

    Unemployment Rate: 9.5%

    The economy: Agriculture (1.2% of GDP), Industry (21.9% of GDP), Services (76.9% of GDP- :eek:)

    Education: 27.5% of the adult population has a Bachelor's degree or higher.

    LOL Kimster!

    It has it's share of problems being a HCOLA with fairly low pay in comparison. :D
