Kansas City, Kan.— Although many economists have predicted the U.S. may see a very modest economic improvement in 2010, pay increase budgets have continued to decline over the past year.

Survey: 40 percent in U.S. have no broadband | Wireless - CNET News
Many of us take broadband Internet access for granted. But a new government survey paints a different picture of the nation. In a survey of more than 100,000 people in more than 50,000 households across the U.S., 40 percent reported no broadband or high-speed access to the Internet, while 30 percent said they have no Internet access at all. Sponsored by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) and conducted by the Census Bureau, the survey found that most of those interviewed said they either don't need broadband or find it too expensive. Some said they have no computer, but many of those in ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

How do you learn about the labor market? | LinkedIn Answers | LinkedIn
Like stated earlier, the specifics of where, what type, and what for will help shape any answer regarding the labor market. However, I think it is important to look at two-types of data regarding the labor market; backwards and forwards. Backwards is, of course, data comprised of history; last week, last month, last quarter and so on...
