Jobs Numbers Show NJ Still Stuck in Neutral

Jobs Numbers Show NJ Still Stuck in Neutral
BY JON WHITEN
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

The Department of Labor released its latest employment statistics today, and the numbers for March clearly show that New Jersey's economy is still stuck in neutral, with a recovery that lags far behind the nation and our neighbors.

The Garden State has now recovered just 63% of the jobs it lost in the Great Recession, far less than the U.S. as a whole (133%) and our neighbors in PA (106%) and NY (244%). (PA & NY March numbers are not yet available.)

In addition, New Jersey now still falls 326,900 jobs short of pre-recession employment levels when accounting for population growth since the recession began.
