Pennsylvania Jobs Experience Growth Amidst Potential Rebound

The Pennsylvania job market is flirting with a rebound. The last time that the state saw positive job growth was the first quarter of 2008, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The number had steadily dropped until the fourth quarter of 2009, when it improved by 1.2 percent to -3.5 percent. Now the first quarter of 2010 shows a decrease of just -1.6 percent. The unemployment numbers are just as promising. Since May 2007, the rate has steadily increased from 4.2 percent to a peak of 9.3 percent in July 2010. It's slowly dropping, as the BLS reports the October 2010 unemployment rate at 8.8 percent.

Pennsylvania Future Job Growth

Natural resources and mining and education and health services were the only two industry supersectors to experience growth during the first quarter. The two grew by 4.5 percent and 0.9 percent respectively. That's 11,883 new PA careers that paid a weekly salary of $913 and $768 respectively in March 2010.

PA Careers and Education

For a brief look at education in Pennsylvania, consider that 25.9 percent of people over 25 have at least a bachelor's degree, 1.5 percent below the national level. Jobs that require education pay more, such as network systems and data communications analysts, which earned an annual salary of $75,500 in 2009. Then consider home health aides, who in the same time frame earned only $20,800, typically receiving on-the-job-training.
