Spotlight: Rochester metro area sees another decline in employment

Rochester metro area nonfarm employment declined year over year in August — as it has for seven of eight months this year so far — according to the latest Metropolitan Area Employment and Unemployment report released Wednesday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. With a consistency unique among the nation’s top 51 metropolitan areas (those with a 2010 census population of over 1 million) 2017 nonfarm employment in Rochester has increased year over year only once, in June, when we had some 1,100, or 0.2 percent more nonfarm jobs than in 2016, according to monthly BLS reports.
