I recently blogged about the Las Vegas housing market improving, and while the economy in Nevada still has a long way to go, today the Las Vegas Review Journal reported more promising economic news. The LVRJ reports "The Silver State's unemployment rate fell to a three-year low of 11.6 percent in May, down from 11.7 percent in April. It was the second straight month of state unemployment less than 12 percent, and the ninth straight month of declines."
This is great news for Las Vegas and its residents. I quickly perused some of the major casino job pages and found that the number of jobs had increased significantly since the last time I'd checked in December. Fingers crossed that this trend continues across the Valley.
