It's hard to say really, but we've had better job markets than the rest of the country for a long time. However, our unemployment is currently higher than the national average. Some think it is because a lot of people move here with no job because they hear it is a good job market.
There were some really big corporate layoffs that made headlines last week: Glaxo laying off around a thousand and Sony Ericsson laying off over 400. But I don't know how that affects your or your DH's job opportunities directly.
It's definitely a better idea to have a job before you come, but I know that is not always possible.
