A positive, job growth in New York is on the rise. A negative, not in the Capital Region.

We have heard numerous major named employers in the capital region recently have cut jobs, I am sure this has affected the rating in a very large way. Those two companies being General Electric and also Global Foundries. You may have seen some of our articles in recent months about them eliminating hundreds upon hundreds of jobs recently.

Well, when it comes to New York as a whole. We are one of only two areas that actually didn't have a positive job growth according to CBS 6. The entire state gained 123,000 jobs while the Capital Region lost 400.

Hopefully, this can turn around for 2019. Hopefully, we can catch up the entirety of the rest of the state.
