Poll: N.J. still among 10 worst states for 2010 employment

"Rust Belt" states of Michigan, West Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania show vast improvement

Despite an overall national improvement in the job market, for the third straight year New Jersey remained among the 10 worst states to find employment in 2010, according to a new Gallup Poll survey.

Specifically, New Jersey ranked 49th behind only Nevada as the worst job market in the United States.

West Virginia and Pennsylvania, frequently billed as "Rust Belt" states, were ranked 6th and 10th as the best places to find work. North Dakota and the District of Columbia were ranked 1st and 2nd.

The poll’s findings come as statistics made public by the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development Thursday show that New Jersey gained 5,200 private sector jobs but lost 22,200 government jobs in 2010, compared to a loss of 117,700 private sector jobs and a gain of 4,200 government jobs in 2009.
