Oops, it did it again: Las Vegas Tops in the Country in Unemployment

Of the 49 U.S. metropolitan areas with a  population of 1 million or more, Las Vegas-Paradise, Nev., registered the nation's highest unemployment rates in September - 15.0% - the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. It was the fifth consecutive month that the region held the grim distinction, and there is little sign of near-term improvement.

Nevada last month disclosed the 15% jobless rate - which was a record breaker within the state - but it wasn't confirmed until today that that Las Vegas area is still plagued with the highest percentage of unemployed residents in the country.
