The number of Utahns with non-farm jobs grew by an estimated 3.6 percent in July. That’s equal to nearly 46-thousand jobs. The Utah Department of Workforce Services released its employment numbers for July today Friday. DWS Chief Economist Carrie Mayne says it’s the highest growth so far this year.
“Our largest job gains were in the construction industry, trade, transportation and utilities and in education services,” says Mayne.
It was another great month for Utah in terms of job growth. Mayne says all 10 private sector industries showed job gains during the period.
