Re: Maybe this is why Suns_PSD thinks the economy is getting better
On the trucking side, I'm told our recovery here in TX is lagging behind the rest of the country but I believe we are heavily propped up by technology here in Austin. Doesn't seem to help trucking but everything else is holding up better than expected. I actually sell about 1/2 my trucks out of state and that is where all my orders are going right now.
Either way, intake orders are WAY up. Used truck prices are WAY WAY up. The recession is technically over. Trucking is primed for 3-5 years of boom times that's for sure. Even the holiday shopping season was very strong, nationwide.
We put an advert for a receptionist up on Craig's List and received 82 resumes in like 2 hours before we pulled the ad. Which would suggest to me that job supply is a bit low.
Jobs lag behind the economy. The jobs weren't lost until well after the recession began and now that it is over employers will stall to rehire for as long as possible.
