Colorado officials are being encouraged not to do anything rash ahead of supermarkets and gas stations starting full-strength beer sales in 2019.
Key players behind Colorado's supermarkets, liquor stores and other alcohol purveyors need to come up with new rules for phasing out 3.2 beer before year's end.
It could be a while before Coloradans see liquor store chains spring across the state or the proliferation of craft beer on grocery shelves.
Only 3.5 percent of the Colorado's workforce was unemployed in October, the state says.
Now is a good time for many unhappy workers in Colorado to figuratively say, "Take this job and shove it."
