The unemployment situation is horrible where I live. People are begging for work. Taking any crappy job they can get. The Churches are full of people asking what they should do. They are at the end of their rope. It's a catastrophe.

The economy here is amazing. Google, Apple, Facebook, Cisco, Tesla, Intel, ...everybody is hiring. A billion dollar stadium is nearly complete. High speed rail is breaking ground and San Francisco BART to San Jose is in the planning stage. The average house is back up to $710,000 in Santa Clara County. The recovery is booming.
