- Jobless claims remaining below 300,000 – the longest streak since 1970.
The unemployment rates in 13 states have hit record lows in October since the federal government first started recording state-level data, according to The Hill.
“The unemployment rates in Alabama, Hawaii, Maine, Mississippi, Tennessee, Texas and Washington all met or beat their lowest rates ever recorded by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), according to the agency’s monthly report issued Friday,” The Hill reported. “California, Colorado, Idaho, North Dakota and Oregon also hit new lows earlier this year.”
The news comes on the heels of a report showing 141 straight weeks of jobless claims remaining below 300,000. That’s the longest streak since 1970, when the labor market was much smaller. Moreover, these numbers take into account the economic impact of this year’s hurricane season.
“Hawaii boasts the lowest unemployment rate in the nation, at just 2.2 percent in October, followed by North Dakota, at 2.5 percent, and Colorado, Nebraska and New Hampshire, at 2.7 percent each,” according to The Hill.

THANKS TO TRUMP! THREE UCLA BASKETBALL PLAYERS DETAINED IN CHINA FOR SHOPLIFTING BACK IN U.S. THANKS TO PRESIDENT TRUMP
( Daily Mail ) Three UCLA basketball players detained in China on suspicion of shoplifting returned home, where they may be disciplined by the school as a result of the international scandal.
Freshmen LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley arrived at Los Angeles International Airport late Tuesday afternoon after a 12-hour flight from Shanghai.
They ignored reporters’ shouted questions while making their way through a horde of media outside and getting into a van that took off from the departure level.
Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said the matter ‘has been resolved to the satisfaction of the Chinese authorities’.
The players were detained in Hangzhou for questioning following allegations of shoplifting last week before the 23rd-ranked Bruins beat Georgia Tech in their season-opening game in Shanghai as part of the Pac-12 China game. The rest of the UCLA team returned home last Saturday.
( Daily Caller ) Years before Fusion GPS became famous for its work on the Trump dossier, the opposition research firm worked for Tom Steyer, the billionaire Democratic donor currently waging a $20 million TV campaign to impeach President Trump.
A Daily Caller investigation reveals that in 2012, Steyer, a hedge fund chieftain and environmental activist, hired Fusion GPS and its founding partner, Glenn Simpson, to conduct an investigation to help pass a ballot initiative aimed at closing a tax loophole for California businesses and funneling money to clean energy projects.
Steyer poured $32 million into “Yes on Prop 39,” a committee he formed to support ballot initiative Proposition 39. The successful campaign made Steyer a rising star in the world of Democratic politics. The party’s most generous donor in the 2016 election cycle — giving more than $90 million to various political action committees — Steyer is said to be considering running for political office.
The connection between Fusion GPS to Steyer and his “Yes on Prop 39” campaign has not been previously reported, and there is almost no public information linking them.
But a Sept. 24, 2012 press release shows that Simpson, a former Wall Street Journal reporter, was part of the “Yes on Prop 39” California Tax Transparency Project team.
