Unemployment Higher in EVERY Metro Area

NPR's Planet Money reports:

The jobless rate was higher this June than the year before in every American metropolitan area, says the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In a report released today, the BLS finds that 18 of those 372 mets have unemployment of at least 15 percent. Eight of those were in California and five in Michigan. Elkhart County, Ind., with its devastated RV industry, posted one of the biggest year-over-year increases -- a 10 percent jump to 16.8.
Here are those unlucky 18
