Maine's jobs back to where they were before the Great Recession

Sun Journal - The state's economy is back to where it was before the recession when it comes to jobs, a feat some economists thought might be impossible because of its shrinking workforce. The state has returned to the pre-recession peak of about 620,800 jobs, meaning it has made up the 25,000 or so jobs that were shed, and that happened despite a smaller pool of workers than before the recession, said Glenn Mills, chief economist for the Maine Department of Labor.
