Job Growth Crawls In Conn. With More Lost In Dec.
In the nearly three years since the start of the economic recovery, four major industry sectors â¿¿ government, financial activities, manufacturing and construction and mining â¿¿ have lost jobs, the Labor Department said.
The leisure and hospitality industry regained more jobs than it lost and education and health services did not lose jobs during the recession and gained 25,000 jobs since the start of the recovery in February 2010.
Connecticut reached its high point in the job recovery in February 2012 when 1.6 million jobs were posted.
