Really? I thought Snyder was going to create jobs, oh well. Instead of giving breaks to the corporations and other big businesses, just blame the liberals and unions.

Your right redtigers, the point is solidified, your an idiot. At the end of Obama's reign our unemployment will still be for crap, and would be worse if we didnt have Snyder and the RTW law. If you think that the unions dont have a hand in jobs leaving this state then your nuts on top of being stupid!

If all you guys can do is show your class by name calling, that alone says enoug. If you think we wouldn't be worse off because of what Obama did when he took office, well you are not smart. No, it is not the unions fault. This goes back to the rich becoming richer when they allowed over stretched housing loans and not seeing a housing crash, which happened and started from Bush era rules to allow bigger than worth loans. Go drive around and see the land and homes for sale and owned by the bank. But it seems all either of the two of you can do is call me stupid and an idiot, go do some actual research and see why we are where we are and who is actually trying to fix it. Not snyder, if you believe that you are the unsmart one. Learn from history, the rich business corporate owners that run most of the government only care about the rich business corporate owners and making more money for themselves and screwing the worker. Keep the immature name calling for your family functions

I am not sure what RedTigers is looking at. I thought the article said that the unemployment in the U.P. had gone down from 8.6% to 7.5% over the last year with the one months increase being the normal seasonal increase seen every year.
