St Mary’s County trends – EMPLOYMENT TREND LOOKS GOOD IN DC AREA

St Mary’s County trends – EMPLOYMENT TREND LOOKS GOOD IN DC AREA

While unemployment remains over nine percent nationally, the Washington DC MSA enjoys a remarkably positive jobs climate with an unemployment rate under six percent.  Of the fifteen largest US job markets, our region faired better than any.  We added a net of  41,500 jobs in just the second quarter of 2010.

Even more compelling is the monthly trend shown to the right.  We did not start shedding jobs in our MSA until the fourth quarter of 2008, and returned to positive employment numbers in the second quarter of 2010.
