President Obama On Puerto Rico Unemployment

President Obama visited Puerto Rico to show solidarity with the US Territory and promise economic support for their recovery. The Puerto Rico Unemployment situation is not good with an unemployment rate nearing 16%. This rate of unemployment is much higher than any state in the US and with many Puerto Rican residents moving to states like Florida the President's visit is a reassuring gesture that says those on unemployment benefits in Puerto Rico will not be left behind.
