If, indeed, Denver gained 7900 jobs during 2010 then how is it that the unemployment rate has continued to climb and the last quarter increased by more than 0.2% to reach 8.8%? Interesting math.

Many people moved to the Denver area from more depressed areas of the country. Employers are more likely to hire these people because they have shown that they really want a job.

The people who sat home and collected unemployment for a year before seriously starting their job hunt aren't likely to be hired as they have shown they don't really want to work.

There are jobs out there but there are more people competing for them and only the ones who really have a work ethic and perhaps a willingness to try something new are getting them. A few years ago when unemployment was very low all the good workers already had jobs and employers had to settle for the riff raff that was left. Now they don't.
