Washington, D.C. — As the nation’s economy rebounds from a recession and a massive trade war, more jobs are on the way for the nation.
With unemployment in many states dipping below 6%, the Federal Reserve is considering raising interest rates, a move likely to send unemployment to record highs.
In the Midwest, however, many jobs are being lost to automation.
As a result, some of the Midwest’s most economically distressed states are seeing their unemployment rate jump above 10%.
The biggest gainers in the region are the South, which saw job gains of about 200,000 in the last three months.
The region, which includes Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee, has seen the highest rate of job losses in the nation in recent months, with the unemployment rate in Mississippi rising to 13.8% from 10.5%.
Some of the most distressed states in the Midwest have experienced a rise in unemployment rates that far exceeds the national average, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
In Ohio, the unemployment figure in the city of Toledo jumped from 8.4% in October to 10.6% in December.
In Georgia, the number of unemployed residents increased from 7.9% to 10% in November.
In Alabama, the jobless rate rose from 8% to 9.1%.
The largest gainers were in Mississippi, which had an increase of almost 1,000 jobs in December, while Georgia saw its jobless total jump by more than 500,000.
The largest decrease was in Mississippi’s unemployment rate, which dropped by more like 200,00 in December from 7% to 6.4%.
In the South and Midwest, the biggest job losses were in Indiana, where the job losses fell by more over 5,000 compared to the national rate of 2.4%, while West Virginia, which is home to the Carrier plant, saw a decline of more than 5,100 jobs.
The numbers come as the economy is still reeling from the trade war that began in October when President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans passed a tax bill that is likely to benefit the wealthy at the expense of everyone else.
The tax cut was supposed to boost the economy by boosting demand for goods and services and creating millions of jobs.
Trump was quick to condemn the trade bill and his administration has been pushing for a tax cut on corporations.
The trade war has been a boon for the Republicans, who control both houses of Congress and have been able to advance the tax bill on their own, but some Republicans have also criticized the tax cut as too generous.
“The Democrats and the media want us to be in a position where we’re not paying taxes.
We don’t,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News in October.
The Republican tax bill is being opposed by a broad range of businesses, including the AFL-CIO, the National Association of Manufacturers, the Chamber of Commerce and many unions.
In addition to the tax cuts for the wealthy, Trump has also promised to eliminate or scale back other corporate tax breaks, which could hurt the state and local economies.
According to a recent analysis by the Congressional Budget Office, about one-third of all federal tax breaks that were allocated to states and localities in the past five years were for companies.
While the corporate tax cuts were initially intended to boost economic growth and boost corporate profits, many of these tax breaks are now being used to help finance the massive cuts in federal spending in recent years.
That could further strain states’ budgets and affect the local economies they are supposed to support.
According in the latest BLS report, the overall tax burden on states in 2018 was $1.2 trillion, an increase from $814 billion in 2019.
Some states have also seen increases in their unemployment rates from 9.7% in 2018 to 11.4.4 in 2019, and unemployment in Alabama is now 9.8%, while in Mississippi it is 10.9%.
In addition, many states have seen decreases in their employment rates in the year to date.
In March 2018, for example, unemployment in Texas was 5.6%, and it has declined to 3.7%.
Meanwhile, the states that had the highest unemployment rates in 2020 saw decreases in unemployment in 2017 to 6%, and in 2018, the percentage of the workforce that is employed has declined from 27.3% in 2020 to 27.2% in 2017.
This year’s report also shows that the states with the highest percentage of people in poverty have been the states in which job growth has slowed the most, with a 10.7 percentage point decrease in unemployment for the Midwest.
In fact, the largest decline was in Oklahoma, where unemployment has dropped by nearly 5%.
In 2018, unemployment was 9.4 percent for Oklahoma.
In 2018 and 2019, the Midwest experienced a 13.4 and 12.6 percentage point decline in unemployment, respectively.
