Unapologetic progressive. Fearless activist. Plucky liberal.

Several indicators show the economy is slowly improving. Unemployment is still high, but jobless claims have gone down and the stock market is rising. The local shopping mall is packed every time I go by it, another sign that consumer spending is up. My company, which is in an industry that was in trouble even before the recession, recently announced the restoration of salary cuts implemented almost two years ago. But I also know people who are still having a tough time. Have you benefited from the improving economy yet?
