With the Wake County unemployment rate stuck above 7.5 percent for 40 of the last 41 months (after never being that high in any single month in the last 20 years), you might conclude that the job market is terrible. It is terrible if you are unemployed, but the job market as a whole is more complex. Over the next four commentaries, we will look closely at the Wake County job market in context and compared to other places.

We will examine how the growth in the local labor force has affected the unemployment rate. We will then scrutinize where the...

July 28th     11:30 pm

I have to say that was an incredible party. For days people have been asking me, “How many tickets have you sold? How many people do you think are coming?”

And I would venture a guess. “Last time I looked we had sold 80 tickets online.” But then there were all the emails from folks asking if they could pay at the door.  And the Facebook event that said lots more were coming than had bought tickets.

But all that is unimportant now. Because the party is over.
