Job Creation in the 2000s?

Floyd Norris over to the NY Times did some quick stats in his blog about the health of the US Labor Market in the 2000s. I’ve run similar stats before in this post titled The Six Year Pay Cut, but I wanted to pull his:

  • Private Sector Jobs in 1999: 110 million
  • Private Sector Jobs in 2009: 108.4 million
    • Meanwhile, the US population grew by 9.8%
  • During the 1990s private sector job growth soared at a rate of 21.2%
    • Population growth was 13.1%

About benleeson
My name is Ben Leeson. I currently work for a large financial company in IT. I went to school at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. I graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration concentrating in HR. Professor William Brown taught me and I enjoyed his classes; even acquiring an appreciation for just about all things HR. I didn’t pursue a job in that field after college but I’ve kept up with it. This blog will further my fascination with all things HR. I hope to grow my knowledge of the area through thoughtful writings and spirited feedback. I will attempt to have a fairly routine style so anyone reading can come to expect certain segments. Please excuse my incorrect grammar and occasional misspelling.
