Dayton's Emplyment Woes Lands the County Third in National Job Decline

Dayton Daily News:
Montgomery County is third among the top four counties nationwide to have the largest decline in fourth-quarter employment levels from 2005 to 2006, according to a report Wednesday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The county, however, also saw a 6.4 percent increase in the average weekly wage during that same time, according to the report.
According to the BLS report, Montgomery County in fourth quarter 2006 saw a 6.4 percent increase from 2005 in the average weekly wage, when it had a 0.5 percent decrease in the average weekly wage.

Montgomery County's average weekly wage for the fourth-quarter 2006 was $828, up from $777 in the fourth quarter of 2005.
For once the paper doesn't editorialize a conclusion... I wonder why... The conclusions I draw don't look so good for the liberal/socialist agenda that the paper pushes.
