According to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, El Paso’s employment fell from 322,863 in August, 2013 to 320,437 in August, 2015 (the latest month for which data is posted).
That’s only 2,400 jobs we lost. Only a little more than 100 a month.
I guess those didn’t get announced in the press.
We should give credit to Mayor Leeser’s press secretary for making sure all those new jobs got announced.
