Taxable sales are up. So are home values. Foreclosures are down and tourists are coming back. But employers have only restored a fraction of the 170,000 jobs lost in Nevada during the recession.

John Restrepo, Principal, RCG Economics
Stephen Brown, Director, UNLV Center for Business and Economic Research
Phillip Dahlheimer, Consultant, lost his job in 2008
Troy Lovick, former broker, struggling since 2008
