In a sign of an unusually tight labor market, there are 17 states that hit record lows on the unemployment rate, The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday.
The April 2022 data comes from 15 of those states that reported record highs of unemployment at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in April 2020, according to the U.S. Labor Department.
The states are located in the Midwest, South, and Mountain West, according to the analysis.
In addition to two red states, Oklahoma and Arkansas, having hit record low unemployment earlier this year, it was primarily the red, Republican-led states reporting record low unemployment this April.
The lowest unemployment rates in the nation come in Nebraska and Utah, both at 1.9%.
But but California followed to the letter Crazy Joe and Tony the fauch. How could this be?
