I have some mixed feelings on this Labor Day. Nationally, unemployment is at a 26-year high of 9.7%.  In California, the jobless rate has soared to 11.9%. There is evidence the recession-battered economy is making a slow recovery, an encouraging sign.

Still with so many people out of work it’s hard to cheer the upturn in the economy. I may not be cheering, but I’m hopeful. And that is as good as it gets for me on Labor Day 2009.
