State Unemployment Rates – Two Americas

People who live in different parts of the country have two wildly different economic situations right now. If your state reopened and, more importantly, reopened early, then you have in many cases literally half the unemployment rate of states that remained under lockdown.

Living in Florida, I find it fascinating talking to friends in blue states who describe their cities as hellholes of poverty and anger. For the better part of the last year, life in Florida has been… totally normal. We have five-o’clock traffic, playgrounds are crowded, kids have been back in school for a long time. Even church festivals and functions are back.

This is what a federalist system looks like – it is very important where you choose to live.
