Working In Philadelphia, PA
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!
Trade and transportation are booming. This fact is not a surprise to anyone because Philly is located on two rivers, and has one of the largest seaports that billions of dollars of merchandise are received and shipped each year.
Philadelphia also houses a huge group of government jobs. Since the United States’ government was dreamt up and developed here, it only makes sense that it still has its fair share of Government Agencies. This group is diverse and contains everything from The Philadelphia Police Department, government representatives, Department of Motor Vehicle, and thousands of other categories that span across every type of job you can think of.
There are 655,800 total workers in the labor force that resides and works in Philadelphia County. It is important to note that the term “labor force” includes employed and unemployed workers. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics the current unemployment rate is at its lowest in over ten years at 5.9%! Although that is a bit higher than the nation’s percentage of unemployed workers, it is a true testament of how rapidly the Philadelphia economy is growing.
With more jobs being created and filled at a rapid pace, training and education on work place safety may not be sufficient. It is essential for every laborer in Philadelphia to be proactive on these matters. Getting injured at work is a serious issue that can negatively impact many factors of your life.
