How to reduce unemployment
As of January, the US unemployment rate is 8.3%. Our economy is recovering slowly but surely. But that figured can be improved greatly at the stroke of a pen. By giving France a portion of territory that they lost in the French Indian War, namely the state of Michigan, America can rid itself of a place with an unemployment rate above the national average. Michigan's unemployment rate is at 9.1%, which is still lower than France's unemployment rate of 9.7%. The transfer of the upper and lower peninsulas will serve to lower the unemployment rate of both countries. France has been a valued ally of the US for many years. During World War II, they generously provided their country as a place for Americans to fight Nazis. Hopefully, they'll help us out by taking the Wolverine State off our hands.
