Wow, this is powerful stuff.  This may be what is impacting our market as well. The "news" is all so rosey and yet the phones are dead....everyone puzzled, prices stable to down some over the year, interest rates unchanged --- if the job market is so great, what is going on. I think you came upon some helpful data here -- imagine, reporting facts, not spin, that would be so helpful.  Hard to fix a problem if you insist it doesn't exist. Thanks for sharing.
