In August 2017 there were 9,577,100 non-farm jobs in New York, a record for jobs in the history of New York State. There was a slight decline in jobs in September, but still we are in record breaking territory for the most people ever employed in our state. It's a much a different story then the 1970s in New York State when our state was not only losing population, it was also losing jobs. August 1969 had 7,280,700 jobs in New York, a number that wouldn't be exceeded until May 1981 with 7,285,200 jobs.
