The annual report to the governor by the UT Center for Business and Economic Research says job growth is expected to gain vigor in 2011, but non-farm employment won't fully recover until 2014.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports the center's prediction is for 36,000 new jobs during this year, for a 1.3 percent gain.
The jobless rate at the end of the year is still expected to remain above 9 percent. That's more than double the rate of a decade ago.Comments | Share your thoughts »Related StoriesMore Business headlinesNashville Bun Company begins $7 million expansionVanguard Health adds Texas cardiology groupCitigroup breathes new life into EMISurging stocks lift Dow over 12,000Selected for you by a sponsor:ADVERTISEMENT
