Report: MA 49th in Job Creation

Some disturbing economic news on the job front today. A new report shows Massachusetts is ranked 49th in job creation over the last six years.

That's according to a study by MassInc, a Massachusetts-based public policy think tank and the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University.

But, although it trails in job creation, the state ranks near the top in productivity. Joining WBUR's Delores Handy to talk about the report's findings is Dana Ansel, Director of Research at MassInc.

This program aired on November 28, 2007. The audio for this program is not available.
