More like concedes than predicts:
….the report predicts that by the end of 2014 there will still be 27,500 fewer manufacturing jobs in the state than there were eight year earlier.
The state’s unemployment rate is also not predicted to improve much. It was 7.8 percent in September and the report said it would remain at that level in 2012 before dropping to 7.5 percent in 2013 and 6.8 percent in 2014.
