Jobs report: 2,600 new private-sectors jobs in October

By ,

The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics released data that show New Jersey added 2,600 new jobs to the market for the month of October.

The majority of job creation came from the trade, transportation and utilities industry which added over 3,100 jobs in the past month.

Manufacturing (1,700+ jobs), education and health services (1,400+ jobs), and information (1,000+ jobs) contributed to the overall job growth.

However, losses in financial activities (down 2,000 jobs), leisure and hospitality (down 1,500 jobs) professional/business services (down 1,100 jobs) and other industries lowered the overall growth in the state.

Industry employment data was compiled through the Current Employment Statistics survey conducted by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
