NJ job market surges in July; here are 3 places hiring

August 17, 2018

The state gained 13,000 jobs last month. (The U.S. added 157,000 jobs last month. New Jersey’s fair share would have been about 4,700).

It added 7,500 jobs in June, more than what was first reported. And its unemployment rate ticked from 4.3 percent to 4.2 percent, its lowest level since July 2007.

“The numbers on the surface look like the economy is going gangbusters,” Rutgers University economist James W. Hughes said. With total employment, “it’s probably going to be the best year since before the Great Recession.”
