Moderators, given up I see - the spam on this site is getting bad!  I counted over half of the post was spam!

South Dakota at no.3 on the list?  Seriously?  With at least 2, maybe more, of the most impoverished counties in the country you are going to applaud their rate of unemployment?  North Dakota may be the exception but most of these ag driven states have low unemployment because people looking for jobs know to get the haul out.

Also as i look this piece has 5 comments posted.  Four are annoying, reprehensible spam and one protests the spam.  I call that no comment.  Please TRY to do something to eliminate the spam.

 In spring and summer the job rate always goes up and most new jobs are $9.00 an hour or less. Lets see in November.

Don't come to CO!  Rate is 9% here.  Plus the air is bad, water is bad, and it's one big nanny state.

Good job news in 10 states; now only 40 have bad job news. Thanks, Obama, we can hardly wait for Nov. 2, 2012.

Mainly Red States where people will still work for a living rather than being on welfare or demanding a union featherbed job.

Congrats to neighboring states Minnesota and Iowa. Seems Wisconsin is no where to be found on this list. I guess our "jobs-first" lying tea-party governor isn't doing the job he has lied about! Too bad he fooled all the "common folks" here into thinking he was for them. EVERYONE, wake-up and read and think about what these tea-party politicians REALLY have as their agenda. It's not you and me! It's themselves and the wealthy donors who fund their election campaigns in exchange for whatever favors they want. Google ALEC just for fun and read a bit on how they are for the "common people". What ajoke. And if you don't think  the Citizen's United ruling has destroyed our country, PLEASE google this and read ALL the insiders comments. A foreign country can "buy" what it wants by donating to one of our politicians, just as all the huge corporations can. Capitalism can be a good thing; CORPORATISM NEVER IS! PLEASE wake up fellow Wisconsinites! PLEEEEEEASE!!!!
