IL Moves In the Wrong Direction on Jobs
Check out Illinois Policy Institute’s report, “Wrong Way, Illinois” to see how Gov. Quinn’s policies have caused the Land of Lincoln to fall behind on job growth.
From the report: “Almost a year after Illinois record income tax increase, the states unemployment woes contrast starkly with the slow but positive national economic recovery. Unemployment rates in 46 states dropped since January 2011, and some dramatically. Illinois unemployment rate, on the other hand, was 9.8 percent in December, up from 9 percent in January 2011. Simply put, Illinois placed more people on the unemployment rolls than any other state in the country.”
