Charts that work

The Bureau of Labor Statistics has put up a new site with interactive data on occupational employment in the United States.  Worth a look to all labor wonks (and others).

Why important?  I think this one chart says an awful lot about the economy of Pittsburgh and it's workforce.

perhaps someone should review the millage rate calculations utilized to comply with the antiwidfall provisions. that said even with the 30% proposed millage rate decrease the city and county YOU WOULD THINK would immediately release the numbers of parcels paying more and less. Afterall assessments are for one thing and one thing only, to distribute the tax burden fairly. the pretzel logic of endorsing a base year scheme only Robin Hoods evil twin would appreciate when more folks are helped then hurt let alone the fact that it is the Democratic areas that are overpaying, The Hill is paying squirrel hills share and the Mon Valley is paying for Quaker Valley.Incredible lack of leadership
