Are Jobs Increasing?
Baltimore jobs are on the rise, some experts say. The country for sure is seeing an improvement in the number of jobs on the payrolls. For example, the unemployment rate has fallen to 8.3 percent for the month of January. That is the lowest level it has been at since February of 2009. That is definitely good news. The Labor Department is also reporting that the number of jobs added to payrolls accounted for 243,000 additions. That is twice what the country's economists had hoped for and it is the biggest jump in the last nine months. That is all good news.
For those living and working in Baltimore, there have been increases and they continue to come in at a slower pace than what many had hoped for. Still, the city is growing in terms of jobs and that is helping people not only to find new positions to get employed but also to find the types of positions they are qualified for.
