THIS IS MICHAEL DE GROOTE FROM THE SALT LAKE CHAMBER, WITH YOUR METRO BUSINESS REPORT

According to Manpower’s Employment Outlook Survey, moderate job growth is on the horizon for the Salt Lake area. Seventeen percent of Salt Lake City employers said they are planning to hire.

You can now find weekly economic updates by popular economist, Jeff Thredgold online at www.saltlakechamber.org. The updates are sponsored by Zions Bank.

Accountemps released another interesting survey of executives. This time they asked the executives how considerate cell phone users are compared to three years ago. Sixty-three percent of respondents said cell phone users are less polite than they were three years ago. Twenty-eight percent thought cell phone users were somewhat more considerate. Only four percent thought they were much more considerate. Sixty-four percent said it's okay to use a phone while driving, and 58 percent said it's okay to take calls on public transportation. The biggest blunders are accepting a call during a meeting (94 percent of executives were against it) or dining in a restaurant (91 percent were against it).
