Eugene's economy is improving, but not racing yet.

Lane County’s economy is a long ways from speeding merrily along, but there are signs we’re improving. I had lunch yesterday with the head of a local temp agency; companies that provide temporary employees are one of the leading indicators of the economy. For the last three months, temp agencies have been increasingly busy. Companies in Eugene are starting to see increased work load, but aren’t ready to commit to full-time hires. The time until we’re back to normal: probably a year, or Summer 2010, according to my buddy.
