Nevada has seen steady economic recovery for the last five years, and now has the lowest unemployment rate since 2008. Reno Public Radio’s Noah Glick reports.
Unemployment has fallen to 6.4 percent, down from a high of 13.7 percent in 2010. Jobs have increased for 60 straight months, and small business employment is up to nearly its pre-recession peak.
Bill Anderson is Nevada’s chief economist, and he says a lot of this growth comes from filling in those jobs that were lost during the recession.
