Yeah, me neither.
There's more depressing news on the economic front out today, according to a new FDIC report:
Connecticut ranked 45th in job growth, though the state's unemployment rate of 4 percent was better than the national average. Many New England states have experienced slow job and population growth, Driscoll said.
Unlike much of the country, Connecticut and Massachusetts still have not fully recovered the jobs lost from the recession five years ago, Driscoll said. The higher cost of living makes it tougher to attract new residents, he said. AP)
The housing market is cooling off, too, which is good news for the middle class (if bad news for construction companies).
