    Look at Pennsylvania and notice how the southeastern and eastern edge of the state does not have high unemployment due to inward migration from the People’s Republics of NJ and Md.

    Truly frightening.

    Thank you for posting this Ian – this map is a brilliant presentation. Cheers to Current for producing it.

    Wow…sock-o, great graphic, kind of an e-bola job-devouring virus vibe. Great visual, horrible situation for us!
