Nevada Unemployment Rate Increases to 14.3% … Harry Reid Still on the Job
Thank you Harry Reid … The jobless unemployment rate in Nevada increases to 14.3%. Maybe the folks of Nevada would like to explain themselves as to how they reelected Harry Reid back to the US Senate. Do they have no one but themselves to blame for their predicament? One really has to question how a state can have an unemployment rate that is so far above national unemployment rate, coupled with record home foreclosures and bankruptcies and still keep the same people in political power.
One would think that of all the jobd lost in Nevada, Harry Reid’s would have been one of them.
The recession has wiped out 15 years’ worth of economic growth in some corners of Nevada’s economy, and experts say some of that lost commercial activity could be gone for good.
Nevada has taken an employment beating.
- For the first time since 1995, construction employment in Nevada has dipped below 60,000 jobs.
- Leisure and hospitality market: Jobs base has fallen to its lowest level since October 2001, following aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001.
- Factory jobs in Nevada have fallen 26.3%

Senator Reid doesn’t govern the state of Nevada, but is just one of the two Senate representatives from there. Shouldn’t the primary responsibility for state unemployment, as it falls on the government, be mostly related to the policies of the Governor and Legislature?
If there is any responsibility to the Federal representatives, then it would seem that each of them as partial responsibility, perhaps especially for each Senator.
It doesn’t seem fair to single out one person on this story. I also think that the problem is more complex that just the government. What about the role of actual job-creators?
SM: He was in control to change the ways business was done in Nevada. No he is not the only one to blame, but he is to blame. No one in their right mind should have brought any of the existing people in power back into office with the state of affairs that Nevada is in. But then again, when you got the unions behind you, why not.
I fail to understand how Sen Reid, as one person, was in control, or had the ability to be in control, of employment within Nevada.
I’m afraid it would take some type of evidence to see how this would have been possible.
