NYC Hits Record Job Total Across All Five Boroughs

When Mayor de Blasio came into office in January 2014 and promised an economy that was both vibrant and inclusive, there were plenty of skeptics wondering if he could deliver on his promise. As it turns out, he has delivered in a big way. In February of 2016, New York State Department of Labor reported that New York City added 2,800 jobs. This is a staggering, record-breaking high of 4.3 million jobs across the five boroughs (Brooklyn, Manhattan, Staten Island, The Bronx, and Queens). Since January 2014, 254,900 jobs have been added to the private sector. Most of the employment gains have been seen in Healthcare, Scientific, and Technical fields.
