Info Jobs Tick Up A Bit

Michael Mandel

This morning's payroll report, while overall disappointing, shows a slight gain in info-related jobs, the fourth straight increase.

The number of broad info-related jobs rose by 6,000 in May. That includes tech-related manufacturing, telecom, broadcasting, software, internet-related industries, computer systems programming, electronics stores and electronic markets and brokers. Omitting electronic markets and other brokers, the gain came to less than 2,000.

Info-related jobs are up by 73,000 over a year ago--a pretty meager performance considering that the economy as a whole added almost 2 million jobs. Once again, omitting electronic markets and other brokers, the year over year gains were only 47,000.

More to come a bit later.
