Santa Cruz New Mexico Jobs

According to a new report from the US Department of Labor, the Watertown area of northern New York has lost nearly 6,800 jobs in the past five years. It is one of only two metro areas in America where employment has fallen by more than 20% in the past five years.


While the region added thousands of jobs between 2015 and 2019, it lost 13,000 in the past five years, according to the report. The metro sector has lost almost 7,500 jobs since 2011, wiping out more than half of its total employment growth over the same period.


Leisure and hospitality sectors were the hardest hit in Santa Fe, while the region's labor market has lost more than 1,000 jobs in the retail and wholesale sectors over the past five years. Many of the cities that lost the most jobs were in New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New Mexico, according to the report. The Youngstown Metro station has also lost about 2,500 jobs, or about one-third of total employment growth. Las Cruces has created manufacturing and wholesale jobs, while losing thousands of jobs in other industries such as construction, manufacturing and retail.

The lack of jobs has driven many people out of the city who are looking for work in other areas. Flagstaff has created nearly 5,000 jobs in the past five years and lost nearly 12,500 jobs between August 2019 and August 2020. The job decline triggered by COVID-19 is the second-largest decline in Arizona's labor market, behind the decline in Phoenix, according to the report. California cities like Visalia and the Porterville area are also struggling, losing more than 1,100 jobs, or about one-third of total employment growth.


The city has lost the most jobs in the last five years, but only one where the business and service sectors have lost more jobs than any other sector. In Scranton, Pennsylvania, nearly 1,000 jobs have been lost in the last five years, or about one-third of total employment growth. Johnstown is the city with the highest number of jobs lost in the previous five months, and will have more than 2,500 jobs in August 2019 and August 2020.


According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, 22,000 jobs will be lost between August 2019 and August 2020, up from 19,500 in the previous five months. The bureau's employment report for the first half of 2018 in New Mexico reported a total loss of 1,845 jobs in Santa Cruz County, a 1.5 percent decline.
