Nevada’s jobless rate jumps to 13.7 percent

So, how’s that stimulus working out?

Unemployment in Las Vegas in April shot to a record high of 14.2 percent with an estimated 140,900 residents out of work.

The state Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation also said the Nevada jobless rate hit a record high of 13.7 percent for the month.

Just another reminder that President Obama’s stimulus was and is an epic failure.

I wonder if Sen. Harry Reid still thinks rising unemployment is good news? Video after the jump.
