Most of the North Country in New Hampshire is between 3 and 5% unemployment. Without the ‘city’ of Berlin dragging them down at 4.9%, the regional average would be between 3-4%. Not that bad. But this, according to the NH Senate, is an employment crisis.
The laboratories of the States (and some cities) have proven time and again that politicians are a threat to the job market. Mandatory minimum wages never create more jobs. They result in higher unemployment, fewer hours, higher prices, and less opportunity. Local Democrats have decided they want that for New Hampshire.
