A Small Success

May 19th, 2010 No comments

Remember the days of 5% unemployment? Neither do I, but here’s a little bit of good news about my home state of Washington.  On one level, it’s hard to celebrate 9.2% unemployment, but on the other, any downward trend is a good one.

It’s hard for me to quantify, but this feels like a trend: more people I talk with are able to pursue more options.  Cautious optimism is in order.
