NY’s Economy Attracts ‘Best of the Best’

According to Bohdan M. Wynnyk, Deputy Director of the Division of Research and Statistics, and the New York State Department of Labor, New York continues to experience record-breaking job growth in the private sector.

New York State’s economy continued to grow in May as it added 21,300 private sector jobs, reaching a new all-time high and outpacing job growth nationwide. This marked the 18th consecutive month of private sector employment gains. Our state’s jobless rate remained at 6.7%, its lowest level since late 2008,” said Wynnyk.

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo is credited with helping rebuild New York’s employment industry, having overseen the record growth of the last few years.  Since his inauguration on January 1, 2011, the New York State economy has added 466,000 private sector jobs, and experienced job increases in 36 of the last 41 months – including 18 consecutive months of growth in the private sector.

Over the past year, private educational and health services sectors experienced the most growth, adding +36,300 jobs to New York’s economy.  Professional and business services had the second largest increase in jobs with +30,100.  New York’s trade, transportation and utilities sector added +23,300, third most in the state.
