January 20, 2006. Economic analysis by the FPI for the New York City Employment and Training Coalition and the New York City Workforce Investment Board. Among the findings: With several very large employers, this sector currently employs 200,000 workers and will offer tens of thousands of career opportunities over the next ten years. The jobs are more likely than others in NYC to be full-time and union-represented; workers tend to be non-white, male, and/or immigrants. Even in a globalizing economy, the sector is likely to continue as a relatively stable source of good-paying jobs for less-educated New Yorkers.  Brief >>
