Philadelphia is the birthplace of America. Everywhere you look there is a historical landmark or place of interest. There are a lot of important things in Philadelphia. Our cheesesteaks, our universities, and even our museum steps are famous! Although it is more low-key, one of the most impressive factors of “The City of Brotherly Love” is its economy.
Philadelphia’s major industries have been going through a transition since the powerhouse of manufacturing started its steady decline after World War II. Recently, the driver of the economy has shifted to a focus on education and health services. Together, those two industries hold about 30% of Philadelphia’s total jobs. Philadelphia has one of the most educated populations. Within the city limits, there are some of the top research universities, which come with many research hospitals as well.
Other than education and health, many other industries are currently flourishing!
