Minnesota’s well-paying jobs shift to health care

By Logan Lafferty

Minnesota is just 1,000 jobs short of replacing the 160,000 jobs it lost during the Great Recession. But well-paying construction and manufacturing jobs are down over the past five years while health care jobs are on the rise, according to a Finance & Commerce analysis of state jobs data…Rochester-based Mayo Clinic, Minnesota’s largest private employer, saw its jobs in the state grow 6.6 percent, to 41,431, from 2008 to 2012.
