The Broward Metropolitan area added 8,056 jobs in February, marking the third consecutive year of positive year-over-year employment growth. The increase was boosted by seasonal holiday employment. Over the trailing 12-month period, a total of 41,605 payroll jobs were added, marking a 1.4% growth rate. Year-to-date, the construction industry led all sectors in employment growth at 9.5%. Pre-recession employment levels will likely not be surpassed until 2015 but hiring will continue to increase.
