If you have a job, you may have labored under the same misunderstanding that I have for the last few months about Tucson’s job market.
But if you weren’t laboring, you probably did understand.
I’ve been thinking Tucson’s economy had finally “turned the corner,” as they say. That we had finally shaken off the Great Recession blues. That jobs were becoming plentiful and better-paid.
It’s easy to see why. Here in downtown, where I’m writing this, there are five construction projects within a couple of blocks, suggesting a boom time. And even beyond this construction zone, there has been great economic news for the region.
