By In Uncategorized On May 24, 2011

If you think the job market is better in NYC, you are correct.  The overall unemployment rate in the U.S.  fluctuates between 8.7-8.8% and in New York state it is 7.9%.   (Best in the country is North Dakota – 3.3%).

And in April 2011, 1 out of every 5 new jobs created was in New York.  In addition to new positions being created in the medical and educational fields, the hospitality industry saw an increase of 2.9% or almost 23,000 jobs.

Restaurants & hotels are increasingly optimistic about the summer tourism season and this means higher hotel room rates as well as crowded streets and stores.
