15 percent and counting

Unemployment on northern Minnesota’s Iron Range is at 15 percent but that doesn’t include the miners who are laid off but have an expectation of being called back at some point. Nor does it include those working part time after having been laid off from a full time job. It “feels” like unemployment is much worse here right now, even as joblessness stabilizes in other parts of the state. (Duluth News Tribune, June 22)
