Unemployment Claims Drop….New Low
Good news at last this week; it is hard to think positive thoughts when the TV pundits are declaring the end of the world due to the financial crisis. I get it – things are bad and we are in uncertain times. But the last time I looked, the stores are packed. And the Sidewalks on Michigan Ave are filled with shoppers carrying bags.
Today we got some good news: “the number of people seeking unemployment benefits dropped to the lowest level in 4 months.” This was an unexpected drop and helped the Stock Market come back after yesterday’s heavy losses.
We are continuing to see a demand for digital media professionals across the country and the most active markets are Seattle, Boston & New York. Hopefully this will continue as we approach 4th Quarter 2011.
