Unemployment and Economic Recovery

Posted on April 21, 2010. Filed under: Industry News | Tags: , , |


Unemployment is a pesky problem that lingers.  Most large metro areas of the country are still losing jobs.  Even as the economy gently moves forward and tries to expand, companies tend to increase the hours of existing employees rather then commit to hire significant numbers of new workers.  DC, VA, and MD are relatively healthy if you compare how few jobs they have lost relative to other states.  The only areas (cities) in the US that currently show true job growth are low population areas such as Ocean City, NJ.

The following story (link below) is a complete summary of the latest statistics.  If you look to the right within this article you will see a great interactive graphic that provides specific data related to Employment, Housing Starts, Housing Prices and Industrial Production within each state in the US.   Economic Recovery at MSNBC.
