THIS WEEK’S BUSINESS PRESS POLL QUESTION
Log onto the Las Vegas Business Press website and let us hear your opinion on this week’s question.
Nevada’s unemployment rate in October fell for the first time since the recession started in 2007, although state Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation officials said deep cuts in the size of the state’s work force accounted for much of the decrease. Bill Anderson, the state employment department’s chief economist, said the drop from 14.4 percent in September to 14.2 percent in October suggests “that the recession’s grip on Nevada may finally be loosening.”
Do you think the improved unemployment numbers signal that Nevada’s economy is starting to recover from the recession?
