Live! From New York! It’s Jobs Friday! (Job growth has spread to more of the nation’s large metro areas)

The Wally Street Journal reports:

Wall Street, Washington and Main Street are all aligned on one thing: Jobs”

“One reason for optimism is that job growth has spread to more of the nation’s largest metro areas—divisions bigger than cities that can include several counties.

According to data from the government and Moody’s Analytics, 82 of the 100 biggest metro areas saw year-over-year job growth through December. That is up from 71 metro areas with an increase through December 2010.”

Top job gainers include: Provo, Utah; Louisville, Kentucky; Salt Lake City, Utah; Worcester, Massachusetts; San Jose;, California. (I’m not surprised about Provo and Salt Lake–lots of innovation going on there.)

Top job losers include: Palm Bay, Florida; Augusta, Georgia; Colorado Springs, Colorado; Lakeland, Florida; and Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Let’s hope it keeps moving UP!
