The Worst Places to Find a Job in the US


Inquiring minds are looking upon a post over at Verum Serum on the “35 Worst Places to Find a Job in the US“. and is, quite simply, heart-rending.

Two Authors on The Two Californias

UPDATED: If you haven’t read this post, I urge you to take the time to do so…and also read the two articles referenced in this post. Especially the on by Victor Davis Hanson.
