We Won’t Get Fooled Again!
Day #4: SHH! Don’t tell Governor Perdue and Lt. Governor Dalton that North Carolina has the 5th highest unemployment rate in the country! While Governor Perdue and Lt. Governor Dalton want to continue the same trajectory and think North Carolina is on the right path, only Pat McCrory has the courage to tell the truth: North Carolina’s economy is broken and it will take new leadership in the governor’s office to jumpstart a real Carolina Comeback.
Here are the Facts:
Since January 2009, North Carolina Has Endured 44 Straight Months Of 9% Unemployment Under Perdue-Dalton, Consistently Higher Than the National Average (Bureau of Labor Statistics)
More than 450,000 North Carolinians are Unemployed –– Greater than the Populations of Asheville, Shelby, Burlington, Kannapolis, Chapel Hill, Jacksonville, and Wilmington Combined! (U.S. Census Bureau)
North Carolina Economic Recovery Has Been Far Weaker Than The National Average (Andrew Dunn, “UNCC economist: Why aren’t we talking about jobs?” Charlotte Observer, 9/12/2012)
North Carolina Has Had “Lost Decade” of Job Growth Under Perdue-Easley-Dalton from 2001 to 2010 (Richard Craver, “Study cites dismal job stats in last decade in N.C.” Winston-Salem Journal, 9/3/2012)
Once the largest economy in the Southeast, Now NC is 4th behind VA, Georgia and FL (Jane Stancill and David Raynor, “Is North Carolina losing its once-lofty perch?” News & Observer, 9/17/2012)
There Are Less Employers in North Carolina Today Than in 2009 (“2012 State of Small Business and Entrepreneurship,” U.S. Small Business Administration, 2012)
Entrepreneurship in NC is Down (“2012 State of Small Business and Entrepreneurship,” U.S. Small Business Administration, 2012)
