The 10th Amendment protects state powers and puts a hamper on presidential powers. Here’s how the fight for control is playing out today.
America has been battered by job losses during the coronavirus pandemic, with some of the worst occurring in key swing states ahead of the U.S. presidential election in November.
Roughly 21% of workers in Michigan have applied for unemployment benefits over the past four weeks, while 19.8% filed jobless claims in Pennsylvania, according to data compiled by USA TODAY.
Nevada and Ohio, two other critical battleground states in 2020, stand at 19.3% and 14.6%, respectively.
More than 22 million people have applied for unemployment claims over the past month, or about 14% of the workforce, wiping out all of the job gains since the Great Recession.
