The healthcare industry, for obvious reasons, has been booming this summer, which was apparent in the most-recent monthly report by the Bureau of Labor. Physician offices added over 27,0000 employees, dentists, 22,000, followed by hospitals (14,000) and home-based health care, at 12,000.
As of the end of August, health services have seen 147,000 new jobs filled. The industry previously saw 358,000 jobs added in June, as well as another 126,000 in July. As a whole, unemployment numbers fell to 8.4% in August, down from a staggering 14.7% peak in April.
