Rep. Jay McNamar: Numbers show state is moving forward
I wanted to write to address the status of Minnesota’s economy. New numbers released this month have shown that Minnesota’s unemployment rate has dropped yet again, from 5.3 percent down to 5.2 percent. That looks pretty darn good compared to the U.S. rate of 7.6 percent. The last time it was this low was all the way back in May of 2008, over five years ago and before the great recession.
