A report from the New York State Comptroller says the amount of jobs in the Big Apple’s tech sector has grown nearly sixty percent in six years.
“Last year, employment in the tech sector surpassed 280,000 jobs,” said New York state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli. “Which ranked New York third in the nation after California and Texas. Since 2010, this sector in New York State as a whole has added more than 57,000 jobs.”
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio says the growth of tech job salaries is outpacing other’s in the private sector.
