Here's a bit from the Seattle Times Quote:This is the slowest recovery in the post-World War II era. You wouldn’t know it in booming Seattle. Cranes are poking up all over the skyline and the May unemployment rate for Seattle-Bellevue-Everett was a healthy 5?percent. Like other metros with heavy assets in technology or energy, we are doing far better than the rest of the nation. And here, you can see for yourself from http://www.bls.gov/eag/eag.wa.htm There is a lot of lobbying going on because, of course, employers don't want to pay more and are doing all they can to make it look like a bad thing. Of course there are glitches here and there as it gets sorted out, but overall, it's working just fine.
