Job Situation Continues Improvement

New Mexico’s job situation continues to improve. A little.
Employment, seasonally adjusted, grew a few hundred from April.
From May 2012, however, May 2013 employment showed 10,100 more jobs for a total of 943,300. The increase was 1.16%.
The seasonally unadjusted figures weren’t as pretty, so we’ll just wallow in the glorious 1+%.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics released the figures today.
Some sector figures, seasonally adjusted, show:
Construction: +2,900 to 43,600.
Manufacturing: -1,300 to 28,500.
Professional and business services: +100 to 98,100.
Finance: +1,500 to 34,200.
Education and health services: +1,800 to 123,500.
Leisure and hospitality: +2,800 to 88,500.
Government: -1,900 to 192,400.
