New Orleans Down 1100 Jobs

While many large cities are reporting small but steady comebacks, New Orleans suffered a job loss during the month of September. The city, suffering from a broader scope of economic hardship than others, lost a total of 1,100 jobs last month. Three other major metropolitan Louisiana areas, including Alexandria, Houma and Lafayette, also lost between 200 to 1,000 jobs each last month.
