Boston near tops in urban job growth

Boston.com is reporting that Boston was ranked 4th in urban job growth during the month of July. It was no surprise to read that education, health care, professional and business services, and tourism helped to create those job gains. The growth rate of just under 1% sounds pretty anemic to me but the article indicated that most urban areas actually reported a job loss so at least we bucked the downward trend.

For all sorts of depressing economic news, you can visit the Bureau of Labor Statistics and pretend like our government is that there really is no economic downturn and everything will be just fine if we all stay calm and do nothing.
