New York State economy adds 32,100 private sector jobs in May 2017, reaches new record high

from New York State Department of Labor

In May 2017, New York State’s private sector job count increased by 32,100, or 0.4 percent, to 8,063,200, a new record high, according to preliminary figures released today by the New York State Department of Labor. New York’s statewide unemployment rate rose from 4.3 percent to 4.4 percent in May 2017. This over-the-month rise in the State’s jobless rate was due in large part to a 27,700 expansion in the statewide workforce as more re-entrants and new entrants to the labor force sought employment. Since the beginning of this year, the statewide labor force is up more than 175,000. more
