The situation in Rhode Island, whose state motto is simply “Hope,” is looking right hopeless.
Unemployment in the Ocean State stands at 11%, according to BLS data released today.
That’s second-highest in the nation after Nevada, which has a 12.3% unemployment rate.
They’re also one of the only states to have net jobs losses compared to February of last year.
Big problems for such a small state!
