Unemployment Rises In 44 States

Unemployment worsened in most states last month.

These include Nevada, which continues to have the highest jobless rate in the nation, at 12 percent. But when compared to a year ago, the same number of states, 44, have lower unemployment, and even Nevada is in this group.One year ago, the jobless rate in Nevada was 13.8 percent.
