New Jersey Tech Workforce Expanding

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, New Jersey added five percent more technology positions or 3,600 jobs through the first half of the year. The state noted a similar growth rate last year. One reason may be that New Jersey is working to attract small and mid-sized tech companies through incentive grants to firms that create just 10 new jobs.

Schuylkill River Trail Named Among Best in U.S.

USA Today named the best bicycle trails in the country, with Philadelphia's Schuylkill River Trail coming in 12th. Reasons cited include trails that gave cyclists direct access to business districts while avoiding city traffic; trail surfaces that were paved; and paths that were separate from traffic for most of its length. The article added that the 23-mile Schuylkill River Trail is great for both recreational cyclists and commuters entering the city from Montgomery County look for a scenic shortcut through parts of Center City.

Food Manufacturing Continues to Grow in Greater Philadelphia

Greater Philadelphia's food manufacturing sector continues to grow due in part to the region's strategic location. Now the 3rd largest manufacturing sub-sector, food production accounts for more than 10 percent of the region's manufacturing workforce. The growth of the sector is also attributed to the region's port facilities of the Delaware River, supporting infrastructure such as the large amounts of refrigerated warehouse space, and direct service by the two Class 1 railroads.
