Forbes Predicts Low Hiring In Spokane For 2012

Just when you thought the economy was getting better, Forbes Magazine goes and pulls the rug out from under you with their What Hiring Will 2012 Bring? article.

According to the article, and a survey done by financial information company Sageworks, 92% of the companies surveyed believe they'll either maintain or increase their employee count in the coming year.

While that's great news, there is some less-happy news locally. The magazine lists the cities where employers are most pessimistic about hiring in the first quarter of 2012 and unfortunately Spokane is at the top of the list. Here's a look at the cities Forbes thinks jobs won't be in 2012. Can we prove them wrong folks?
