Job creation plans faded, suggesting weaker job creation ahead. The net percent of owners planning to increase employment fell 1 point to a seasonally adjusted net 9 percent, after a 3 point decline in August.
Oh yeah, "governor" Retread's got us all on the right track, and things are looking rosy. Whatever he's been smoking probably isn't completely legal here yet, so presumably he's prescribed himself a card.
Expected real sales volumes posted a 1 point decline, falling to a net 5 percent of owners expecting gains after dropping 4 points in August. Overall, these readings are more like a recession period than one of expansion.
Well how interesting! Especially since Oregon's Retread "governor" has been bragging about his success in job creation and economic expansion. Oddly, small business owners in the state don't seem to agree. Of course, unlike Retread, they actually have skin in the game.
