Jobs, and jobs again

Not anything in the news today that I see, but in general I have to admit I get confused when I read most opining on the source of job growth in the region’s economy.  So below is just a straight up look at where recent job gains are coming from in the Pittsburgh region.   It’s the job gains that are most likely fueling the migration gains of late which then has a big impact on local real estate markets. The big decline in ‘government’ jobs is of note.  Of the 3,300 job loss over the year, just about half (1,600) are losses in state government jobs.  600 jobs were lost in the Federal government, 500 in local school districts and 600 in local government other than the school districts.
