Jobs: The Good, the Bad, and the Texas

The Blonde sends a very interesting map of job changes in the U.S. Here is my county, Wake County, NC. (Do click for a more glorious image; this is a screen shot, so no interactivity. To get the interactive map, go back to here)

Notice that we are back where we were in 2007, for total jobs. (Unemp rate is up, though, becuase we have had in-migration and growth from births)

The big hammer down was construction jobs. Biggest employment sector, professional services, has just about tread water, though it is moving up slowly.

You can do it by state, also. Here is Oklahoma.
