(ALBANY, N.Y.) -- Although New York state has regained almost all the jobs it lost during the recession, only New York City and Glens Falls have acquired more jobs than they previously lost, the Albany Times Union reports.
All other metro areas in the state have fallen short, and two of them, Ithaca and Elmira, continue to see employment drop, a recent report from state Comptroller Thomas DeNapoli finds.
In spite of gaining 335,900 private-sector jobs after the recession, after losing only 311,100, it experienced a net loss of 23,200 public sector jobs.
Unemployment hit a record high of 7.2 percent in April.
