CARSON CITY, Nev. – Jobless rates in Nevada hit records in April, climbing to 13.7 percent statewide and 14.2 percent in Las Vegas, the state reported Friday.
The Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation said 193,000 people are out of work around the state, including more than 140,000 in the Las Vegas area alone.
"While the consensus may be that the recession is nearing the end, employment has not begun to show any signs of real improvement," said Bill Anderson, chief economist for the agency.
Nevada's jobless rate was 13.4 percent in March and 11 percent a year ago. Nationally, unemployment was 9.9 percent in April.
How can the recession be over is unemployment keeps going up?

I have friends in Nevada. Their economic situation is dismal. This didn't help, either.

LOL, Loving! That sounds so much better than "10% of you will be unable to find jobs".

y sister graduated college today. The first speaker said, "don't worry about the government, the government is here to take care of you. Nine out of ten of you will be able to find jobs."
Did the speaker say WHEN and for HOW LONG?! LOL :o)

My daughter graduated from an International University with her MA degree today. The key note address was given by a global terrorism specialist. The tone was very much spot.on-and not overly positive by any stretch of the imagination. The message was very balanced, and IMO well received by the very diverse student population and their guests.

OB Comment: You don’t blow a bunch of cash on Vegas
How ppl choose to spend their money is their business and he’s got no business to telling ppl otherwise.
