Anchorage Employment Report: August 2018

Even with a slight decline in the number of jobs from the previous year, July was a good month for Anchorage. Overall, Anchorage shed 2,700 jobs from June to July resulting in a total of 151,100 jobs for July. This sloughing of jobs is a typical trend. What’s interesting to note is that several industries besides health care are up. Signs point to a slowing and eventual end of Anchorage’s recession.
