SD Lowest Unemployment Rate in History
April 26, 2023 | South Dakota
South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem announced her state has reached what she claimed to be the lowest unemployment rate of any state in U.S. history, further revealing there are an estimate 25,000 job openings in the Mount Rushmore State that may not require a license or established skill set.
Noem told “Hannity” on Tuesday her administration has established “licensing reciprocity” – where jobseekers from other states who have earned trade licenses in those states will have their certification honored by officials in Pierre.
“Today, I announced a historic investment in apprenticeship programs,” she added, as South Dakota’s unemployment rate fell to 1.9% in the state’s March report. The national unemployment rate is around 3.5% according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. (Excerpt from Fox News.)
