Unemployment Rates by State
In the first two posts in this series, I made the case the claim that the population shift from the “Rust Belt” to the “Sun Belt” has not been driven by a preference for “right to work” states over pro-labor states, and I examined the degree to which population growth in the “Sun Belt” has been driven by immigration, which is eroding, rather than reinforcing, the anti-union sentiment in the “right to work” states in the “Sun Belt.”
In this post, I’d like to examine basic unemployment rates, state by state. What follows is the rate for March 2013, with the “right to work” states indicated in bold.
