Number of Jobs Reaches Record High
11/21/2013 (Updated 11:17:17 PM)When it comes to jobs, the state has reached a record high.
According to New York's Department of Labor, the state added 33,800 jobs in September and October. The .5 percent increase brings the state's job count up to 7,490,100. However, the states unemployment rate increased by .1 percent during the past two months.
The Department of Labor suggests that's because New Yorkers had more confidence finding jobs and the layoffs related to the government shutdown.
