Chamber Releases Annual Report On Job Creation

The annual look at how many jobs have been created in our area has been released by the Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce. The area added almost 1700 jobs in 2012 compared to the year before, but last year was slower than 2011. Chamber President Tim Hulbert says overall employment in the region last year was still below the pre-recession level. Hulbert says the jobs picture continues to gradually improve, and the jobs rebound is continuing. But he says the picture might not be great for 2013 when those figures come out.
