Charleston (WV) Gazette op-ed: Rick Wilson: W.Va. made smart changes on unemployment

The AFSC"s Rick Wilson writes:

We're used to hearing bad economic statistics about West Virginia and bad comparisons to other states, but when it comes to unemployment insurance, we're actually ahead of the pack.

By Sept. 2010, 32 states had to borrow money from the federal government to the tune of almost $40 billion when their unemployment insurance systems went bust. West Virginia is one of the few, and the only one among surrounding states, to avoid that fate so far.
