NYC Labor Market “Continues to Heal” Yet Job Growth is Slowing
New York City’s labor market “continues to heal” as the private sector has added jobs for 10 consecutive months and more New Yorkers are rejoining the labor force, according to the latest economic snapshot from the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC). However, the report notes that job growth is slowing and job posting activity is declining, “both suggesting that some companies may be slowing hiring activity.”
New business formation in NYC continues to surge, NYCEDC says. More than 32,000 businesses, or one in nine of all businesses in the city, have started in the past year.
While Manhattan office vacancy is higher compared to citywide levels, “real estate metrics are not at crisis levels and return-to-office indicators showed strength in December despite potential seasonal holiday effects,” the report states. Recovery in the tourism sector continues to be a bright spot, according to NYCEDC.
