Not good news

Not so good.  Pittsburgh has moved into the top 10 metros for initial claimants associated with extended mass layoff events as of the second quarter 2010 according to the BLS. That is even though the number of claimants dropped by over 36% over the previous year.  So it's more an issue of things going from really bad to just bad in a lot of other places.

Given the large role seasonal layoffs play in normal times, and the partial comeback they made in this data, I guess I would want to know what counts as normal for Pittsburgh (e.g., how is it usually ranked?).
