Haven't you guys heard? There are plenty of jobs to go around! In fact, the only reason anyone in Las Vegas isn't working is because they are just lazy and would rather collect unemployment than get a job.

At least the recession is over now.

‘Great Recession’ over, research group says - Business - Eye on the Economy - msnbc.com

We never reached a depression level which can be described as massive deflation of goods such as housing prices and unemployment of %25.

Look at the link the guy used. MSNBC is the lowest toilet paper network there is, even worse than CNN or FOX. The government has cooked the books so the REAL unemployment rate is hovering around 18% nationally. In Vegas it IS around 23%. The recession ended in June of 2009???? Give me a freakin' break.
