More hiring or more wordsmithing?
Out here in AZ, things seem pretty miserable and becalmed. What was the line from Rime of the Ancient Mariner? "Like a painted ship upon a painted ocean."
In this little burg we like to call Chandler, the last big “get” was some lab experimenting on animals. The last I remember—I am sure they have lured some call centers.
They always need call centers to dun people for money.

About a third of employers in the West “expect” to increase hiring of full-time perms.
In the South, not so much—but they are expected to slack off on laying off.
About a third of those with 500 or more employees plan to add full-time perms.
I just saw where my old buds at Lockheed-Martin are canning 1500 people…Cuts in defense.
We have cuts in defense? When did that happen? They never cut anything. Except people.
