Prosperity Watch: State job creation lags nation, but gap beginning to close

Earlier this week, the N.C. Division of Employment Security released the latest jobs numbers for January, and unsurprisingly, North Carolina’s labor market is continuing to struggle. As the latest issue of Prosperity Watch makes clear, the state’s employment recovery is still lagging the national average, and despite slowly beginning to close this gap, much work remains to provide adequate employment opportunities for North Carolina’s workers.  See the latest Prosperity Watch for details.

    This is the direct result of the discredited GOP expansionary austerity economic theory.

    actually due to the corruption based good ole’ boy network of the democrat party that has ruled for what 138 of the last 140 years. No way of getting out of owing this esmay….if GWB still owns the national economy then the democrat party has many years of ownership of the NC economy left. It will take a long time to unwind 138 years of mismanagement.
