Two years ago this February, Indiana legislators passed a measure prohibiting compulsory union dues and fees. Ever since then, good economic news for Hoosiers has been rolling in.
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. | Illinois' unemployment rate fell to 7.5 percent in May, its lowest level since 2008, the state Department of Employment Security said Thursday.
Indiana's unemployment fell 0.4 percentage points in December to 6.9 percent, the lowest it has been in 62 months.
CHICAGO | The state Department of Employment Security said local unemployment rose in nearly all of the state's metro areas in November.
CHAMPAIGN | Unemployment dropped in Illinois in November to 8.7 percent in spite of a sizable loss of manufacturing jobs, the state Department of Employment Security said Thursday. It was the third straight monthly decrease, but Illinois' unemployment rate remains one of the highest in the country.
After 16 consecutive months of Indiana's jobless rate above the national average -- it's 8.4 percent now, compared to 7.4 for the U.S. -- the cold reality is that we have a problem with a quarter of a million Hoosiers chronically out of work.
Indiana Gov. Mike Pence's creation of a new state jobs agency left Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz complaining she wasn't consulted, even though education is a vital aspect of the new agency's mission.
Democrat John Gregg and Republican Mike Pence, both running for governor, both said to Northwest Indiana audiences Aug. 24 that the primary focus now should be on jobs. And each is right.
INDIANAPOLIS | In his zeal to sell Hoosiers on a right-to-work bill, House Speaker Brian Bosma, R-Indianapolis, appears to be playing fast and loose with the facts about job creation in Indiana.
WASHINGTON | The nation isn't creating nearly enough jobs to reduce persistently high unemployment.
