Business Journal: Region's Businesses Surprisingly Positive

Thursday, September 9, 2010

A Sacramento Metro Chamber survey found that about half of businesses say the economy will improve in 2011.  And two-thirds of the companies surveyed expect to keep their employees with no layoffs planned through the end of the year, while half of companies reported an increase in profits for the first six months of this year compared to the same period last year.

It's a bit of good news in what has been a rather dark outlook for businesses in recent years, with the difficult economy, double-digit jobless rate and the standoff over the state budget with the $19 billion deficit.
