Despite all the claims we keep hearing about the state’s supposedly miraculous economic recovery, too many regions across the state are still waiting for the recovery to happen.¬† The latest issue [1]of Prosperity Watch digs into unemployment and job creation trends in the state’s metro areas and finds that the¬†decrease in unemployment over the last year is almost entirely due to unprecedented drops in the labor force, not to the jobless moving into employment. See the latest issue [1]for details.
