Healthcare – the last bastion of jobs?


Workforce Management magazine reports that the last bright spot in this employment environment may well be health care jobs.
“While the rest of the economy posted rates of joblessness not seen since 1993, health care continued to expand its workforce in December, adding 31,600 positions in a month in which the overall American workforce shrunk by 524,000 jobs.

In the last four months of 2008, the national nonfarm economy lost 1.9 million jobs, while health care added 93,200 jobs in that time, according to the seasonally adjusted statistics.”
