April jobless rate up to 9.6 percent

Tennessee’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for April was 9.6 percent, up 0.1 percent from March, officials said today.  

The national unemployment rate for April was 9.0 percent, 0.2 percent higher than the March rate.

“Tennessee’s unemployment rate experienced a 0.1 percentage point increase from March because of a substantial increase in the number of people looking for a job,” said Tennessee Commissioner of Labor & Workforce Development Karla Davis.

Instead of erasing Gay Rights, busting labor unions, making it easier for banks to repossess peoples homes, Making our jails and prisons warehouse psychiatric patients, defunding health departments of their ability to provide pregnancy prevention and GYN care, relegating our elderly poor to the furthest back halls of the county nursing homes, capping the value of a human life that has been seriously damaged due to someones gross negligence at $750,000.00, or maybe 1 million, if you get burnt to a crisp and manage to live.... How about providing JOBS! Oh yeah, you can't. No time for all that! To all the politicians in Nashville, thank you for doing the peoples' work. We citizens are not worthy of your compassion.
