There are some jobs available in the area, although the unemployment rate is historically high. We have one of the highest unemployment rates in the whole state, if not the highest.
People have called in to Speak Up suggesting there are plenty of jobs around.
That is just not so. This area desperately need jobs. There are some jobs that did not get filled around here when times were good before the crash.
Either the pay is lousy or the working conditions are terrible or both.
There are some jobs that remain unfilled.
Those jobs requests are so old they have grown whiskers.
