"Interesting"? More like "Obvious"

What is the biggest part of NV's economy? Tourism

In a down economy, tourism suffers. NV needs to diversify themselves and get some actual honest to goodness business. Casinos and Brothels will only bring in so much.

What that article isn't saying is that if you have a college degree in Nevada, you can find a job pretty easily (unless you are a teacher, a bunch of them got laid off). My husband's company has tons of unfilled jobs, because they require a degree for supervisors or managers, and they need engineers and IT/computer personnel. There are headhunters/agencies recruiting college graduates. My daughter is a sophomore at UNLV and is already getting internship offers. We still have a teacher shortage, but the government has cut funding to the schools so much they are laying off teachers when we have classrooms of 50 students in the public schools. That's one of the reasons we come last in education.

It's the service and construction sectors that are really hurting in Vegas.

I understand Nevada and California having high unemployment problems, but what's up with #3 Rhode Island?

FARK in FL: I can't hear you over all the jobs I've been creating


Most of us still blame Bush and the Congress that's laser focused on job creation because they have a new bill to defund NPR or Planned Parenthood evry week.

I disagree entirely. NV needs to realize that NV is a stupid place for people to live and send their excess population to places with water. Setting up more industries there would just make the problem worse.

I heard tha the job market in Northern California is much better than SoCal. Any truth to that?

I remember walking into Las Vegas with no job and no money out of college. My wife got a good job in 3 hours, It took me about 8 days.

This makes me sad.

One stupid video game company destroyed the entire state. There were no survivors.

More like, the state destroyed itself by investing in a video game company.

Hint to politicians: investment banking is not a proper role of government. You won't do well at it.

So, uh, the Colorado and Virgin Rivers don't run through Nevada anymore? Lake Mead isn't in Nevada anymore? Pull your head out of your ass, brosef.

Didn't it have explosive growth for a few decades?

I guess the bigger the boom, the bigger the bust.
