NH Unemloyment Not So Good?

Beginning in April 2010 the New Hampshire employment picture, the reported percentage at least, started to look a whole lot better. Having reached a high of 7.1% in February 2010, April’s 6.7% was a promising sign, a cool breeze on a hot day. Things continued to look better through May and the preliminary June numbers …
