Hey thanks for the report. I think you might want to check the figures regarding
industrial sq. footage and percentages though. I havn't been up there in a
while but I wonder what effect all of that road and freeway construction will
have when it starts winding down.
In the near future, we'll be going backwards.Vote Intelligent.
Since when does the media turn to commercial real estate firms to get
projections about the economy? I understand how they are basing their figures,
etc. But available office/business space is only 1 of many indicators that
relate to economic growth. Just because businesses are expanding their offices,
or new businesses aren't popping up everywhere, doesn't mean that companies
won't be experiencing growth. I think the past few years have taught those that
are still around to be cautious, and focus on steady, sustainable growth.
Corporations and businesses are protected by this state in hiring illegal
immigrants. We have students who can't find jobs and when they can the wages
have been depressed. We have high taxes and a huge social welfare program that
citizens are forced to pay into. There is nothing in Utah that makes the tax
base larger by those who pay taxes and those who have lost jobs will still be
spending next to nothing, expect for food. When you hurt the honest American
Citizen you hurt the state as a whole. Until this state stops protecting the
businesses that hire illegal immigrants and stop the social welfare programs by
those that illegally enter this country and our state there will be not
increases in pay and very few jobs. What Utah has done is to create a inside of
Utah a class of people who will work for low wages and is using the citizens of
Utah to pay the Social Benefits.
I don't think these guys know the definition of the phrase "worst case
