The number of workers employed in offices reached a record 1.5 million in 2016, accounting for about a third of all jobs in the five boroughs, according to the report released Monday from state Controller Thomas DiNapoli.
"New York City's office properties are an important part of its economy, attracting businesses and workers from around the world," DiNapoli said.
During that span, the number of workers employed in offices has grown 15% or 202,000 jobs.
The business services sector — including accountants, lawyers and administrative employees — and the technology, advertising, media and information sector accounted for 87 percent of the growth in office jobs.
Many good jobs here in these sectors. Just remember that UFT President Michael Mulgrew in 2014 claimed the cupboard was bare when accepting our sub-par contract that established the lowest pattern for city workers that anyone can remember along with healthcare cost increases while the city was in the midst of record job creation.
Someone will find a way to show that the job creation has slowed to a crawl or ended when our contracts are up for renegotiation in the near future.
