We're Number One

...with the highest unemployment rate in the nation. From the ProJo artice, "Rhode Island’s unemployment rate of 8.8 percent in September ranked highest in the country, nudging ahead of Michigan’s, according to a federal report released yesterday." The actual unemployment rate is probably a few points higher then that number actually because people who can't find work after a certain amount of time get taken off the lists.

Oh yeah, according to Forbes, we also have the 10th most miserable city in America.
