Good News!  A new report show that 35,000 jobs have been added in the Buffalo-Niagara region since this time last year!

According to the New York Department of Labor, the hiring of restaurant and hotel workers was able to offset the drop in construction jobs that we usually see in January.  As far as New York state as a whole, we gained about 90,000 jobs from January 2012 to January 2013. That's not bad!
