CT’s Private-Sector Employment Recovers—To 2011 Levels

Private-sector employment in Connecticut topped 1.38 million in August, new data show, bringing employment just above January 2011 levels. 

Connecticut remains 75,200 private jobs short of February 2020 levels. If the year-to-date trend of adding just under 4,000 jobs per month continues, Connecticut will not reach pre-COVID private-sector employment levels until 2023. The US economy, on the other hand, is on pace to get there in late spring 2022.   Read the complete report here.
