STATEMENT OF GOVERNOR DEVAL PATRICK ON JULY JOB FIGURES
"The Massachusetts economy added 19,200 private sector jobs in July - yet another sign that we are rebounding and the Commonwealth's recovery is real. The fact that this is the largest monthly private sector gain in 20 years shows that our strategic investments in the innovation industries and efforts to improve the business climate are hitting their marks. Despite this good news, I still see the people who are looking for work. For their future and our Commonwealth's, we will continue to push forward."
