Arizona’s economic recovery has been uneven with some sectors better off than others. Economists at the University of Arizona noted that as of December the state replaced nearly 70% of the nearly 295,000 jobs lost between February and April of last year. While trade and transportation saw strong gains, leisure and hospitality remain in a rut. We discussed these trends with Glenn Hamer, the outgoing president of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Hamer also discussed why he believes the state is poised to make a full recovery before the end of 2021.
