As policy makers consider reforms to the state’s unemployment insurance program, the latest issue of Prosperity Watch [1]provides some sobering news.

Given these trends, it is clear that the problem facing North Carolina’s workers is the lack of available job openings–a fact with significant implications for the unemployment insurance reform debate. See the latest issue of Prosperity Watch [1]for details.
