South Carolina has never come out of the Recession. It's been in the top 10 and often the top 5 for highest unemployment for years now. Currently, it's around 11%.

Temporary workers in "right to work states"? Kewl code speak union activist. Too bad more states don't require unions so that the unreasonable pension requirements can collapse the states' economies much more efficiently for the Marxist revolution, comrade. But that is another thread altogether.

Europe cannot contain the contaigen unless it does a 180% turn from its Socialist roots. Possible yes but highly unlikely. All western economies will suffer. It is a matter of when, not if.
