MN hires, so does Mayo Clinic…

By Kelley Luckstein

"Minnesota employers added 15,600 jobs in January, the largest one-month gain in state employment since April 2005," says the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development. Thus, Minnesota's unemployment rate fell to 7.3 percent. I take note that Mayo in Rochester is looking for an analyst programmer, a surgical core technician and a cashier today.  These might only be filling spots left open by retirements, rather than new jobs.  But the simple fact is, Mayo is hiring…

 

Mayo has long described a sort of 'self-fulfilling' job growth for Rochester. As Mayo hired new employees, each 100 or so new people needed an extra, say, clerk at a convenience store, teacher for their 50 or so kids and nurse to handle the increased patient visits.
