The Top 10 States With The Highest Unemployment Rates and Why.

One of the main reasons the unemployment rate is so high in america is when job seekers re-enter the workforce. These are people who went through a period in their lives when they stopped looking for employment. They may have stopped working to take care of children, get married or care for their loved ones. This is sometimes an unavoidable part of the job search process. The bright side of this is that frictional unemployment is usually voluntary and short-term.
