The Puget Sound Business Journal reported yesterday that Seattle has the nation’s 14th best job market, with with 5.10 unemployed people per advertised job out there. We jumped up from #18 last month.
Just a few minutes ago, they reported that our unemployment rate is less the nation’s average (9.2% in the Puget Sound area vs. 10% nation-wide) but that the state did lose 3,800 jobs last month. The good news is that officials say they’re seeing monthly job losses declining.”
Cross your fingers and toes – it looks like we’re on the upturn, folks!
