 ======= Old =========1499002220 

There’s good news regarding the Birmingham job market. Since 2011, the city has added more than 30,000 jobs, just shy of the 45,000 peak employment numbers. So far in 2016, jobs numbers are better than the same time last year. But it’s not all good news and that’s where we start this week’s Magic City Marketplace. Ty West is the editor of the Birmingham Business Journal. He stopped by WBHM to talk about the job market and the problems with this employment growth.
