Raimondo at Rotary talks unemployment

November 8, 2013

PAWTUCKET – General Treasurer Gina Raimondo still isn’t making any commitments to run for governor next year, but she told the Pawtucket Rotary Club Thursday that, if she does run her top priority would be to create job opportunities for Rhode Island.

Noting that the statistic quoted for unemployment in Rhode Island is above 9 percent (9.1), Raimondo told the Rotarians that if you count people with part-time jobs who want full-time employment, the rate is actually closer to 17 percent.
