The city as well as the state of New York have regained all the private-sector jobs lost during the recession and the reported 42,000 jobs already gained this year marks a substantial three-month increase, yet the city's unemployment rate rose from 9.6 percent in February to 9.7 percent in March. That 9.7 mark is almost a full point higher than in March of 2011. According to James P. Brown, principal economist for the New York State Department of Labor, there were decent gains last month in education and health services jobs. The confounding data may be attributable to city newcomers who haven't found work yet, and to others who just don't give a crap but report they're looking for work.
