Tucson Jobs Data: Net +800 Since Aug. 2010

I heard a little snippet about this on 104.1 The Truth this morning and had to look it up for myself.  I was shocked at first, and then when my brain caught up it unfortunately made a lot of sense. 

Net jobs created since August 2010:
  • Arizona  75,000
  • Phoenix  69,400
  • Tucson  800

It made a lot of sense to me because I know Tucson, Pima County, and its politics.  While others have contributed to this, Raul "Boycott Arizona" Grijalva is chief offender.  Electing Gabriela Saucedo Mercer would be a leap in the right direction in November.  WE NEED ROSEMONT COPPER!  WE NEED THE YUMA REFINERY!  Both of which Grijalva is against.

These numbers come from the economic experts at the University of Arizona.  The Eller College of Management, one of the top business schools in the nation, houses the Economic and Business Research Center (EBR), which tracks all kinds of economic data internationally, nationally, statewide, and locally.  The data above was given at the EBR's Mid-Year Economic Update on June 5, 2012.

    1. Yes, we do, and the idiot that called for a national boycott of AZ has the town with the highest national unemployment rate - Yuma at 28% - in his district. How's that for a "public servant"?
