State of the City: Yea or nay?
Nay! for unemployment. Today, WPRI reported that if not for Sacremento, CA, Providence would be the only city in America to have job losses this year. Rhode Island currently has the second highest unemployment in the nation, standing at 11%.
Yea! for truth in the form of PolitiFact, which has repeatedly corrected presidential contender Mitt Romney’s claim that 92 percent of jobs lost in the last three years belonged to women. Romney visited the Ocean State and boasted this statistic on Wednesday.
