Robust job growth forecast for Oakland County

  Oakland County's 28th annual economic forecast is out and, as expected, the outlook is indeed more upbeat than it has been for much of the 21st century, and certainly for the most recent years.

  University of Michigan economists George Fulton and Donald Grimes are forecasting that businesses will add 42,000 jobs over the next three years.
  But they note that even with those jobs added, it'll only amount to 62 percent of the jobs lost between 2000 and 2009.
  Their 32-page forecast was presented in Troy Thursday, and it's worth a read by businesses in the county and by workers and those seeking work.
