Despite downturn FVTC machinists in demand

June 7, 2011

From the Post Crescent: ” Economic growth hits summer lull”– When the government released its latest jobs report last week, it revealed 54,000 new jobs were added in May, the lowest gain in eight months.

What the experts called weak numbers caused more hardship on Wall Street, which ended its fifth consecutive week with losses.

Economists have said the economy must generate at least 100,000 jobs every month just to keep up with population growth and prevent the jobless rate from rising. They add those gains need to be at least double that total to drive down the rate, which nationally now sits at 9.1 percent.

In my view, Fox Cities employers are doing their part to help the recovery.
