Hospital Job Growth Up in August
The healthcare sector—everything from hospitals, to chiropractors' offices, blood and organ donor banks, to walk-in clinics—employed 13.7 million people in August, and has been one of the few areas of job growth during the recession and sputtering recovery, creating 28,200 new jobs in August, and 158,500 jobs in the first eight months of 2010. Healthcare created 215,300 jobs in 2009, and 692,200 jobs since the recession began in December 2007, BLS data and preliminary data show.
In the larger economy, 14.9 million people were unemployed in the United States in June, and 6.2 million of them were long-term unemployed who'd been without a job for at least 27 weeks, BLS reports.
