Job Creation To Be Sluggish
Job growth in the Vegas Valley is likely to be sluggish for the remainder of 2011. The Southern Nevada index of leading economic indicators fell by more than half a percent in June. The index measures such factors as retail sales, gaming revenue and visitor volume. Bob Potts with UNLV’s Center for Business and Economic Research warns the recent figures indicate there will be little improvement in the local job picture through the end of the year.
