Spokane job losses

To provide context, I have created a chart illustrating the losses versus the gains in Spokane County.

There’s more information on this chart, and some footnotes about the data, added to the original post on local large companies that closed in Spokane.

The blue columns is where we were “a while back” and the red line is where are now with these firms. This chart does not capture all jobs lost nor does it capture all jobs created. Go to the link above for more information.

The next chart illustrates total job losses versus gains.  Today, we need to create about 35,000 new jobs to put us back on the track we were on up through 2007.
