New York City is set to become the nation’s biggest and fastest-growing industrial city in the coming years, with more than 70,000 manufacturing jobs already added, and the city’s population expected to rise to nearly one million people by 2030.
But as the industry continues to grow, the state and city are grappling with a looming demographic crisis.
The New York Times recently reported that the state is expected to lose about 3.2 million jobs over the next 10 years, or nearly 30 percent of its workforce.
By 2030, the Times projected, New York State will lose nearly one-third of its workers.
The report found that New York’s population will increase by about 40 percent over the same period, from 5.3 million in 2030 to 9.3.
That’s a 25 percent increase, and by 2030, New Yorkers will be the largest city in America.
A similar story is playing out in the state’s largest cities.
Over the next decade, the metropolitan area that includes New York, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and Boston will lose more than 1.3 billion people, or 23 percent of the country’s population.
By 2050, New England’s population is expected a little more than 2.6 million people.
New York has also become the fastest-shrinking metro area in the country, with its population expected decline by more than half over the period.
The problem of shrinking labor markets is compounded by a lack of investment in new technology.
“It’s a very difficult situation for the city of New York because it has been growing, but it’s going to be a struggle to keep up with population growth,” said Joe Hovland, chief executive officer of the New York Communities for Change Action Fund, which focuses on community-based solutions to economic and social problems.
To try to mitigate the problem, cities and states have stepped up their investment in workforce training, including through the State of New Jersey’s Career Opportunities Program, which was launched in 2014.
In addition to providing vocational training for workers in manufacturing, the program offers job training in the areas of technology, healthcare, law enforcement, education, and public health.
But the program is not available to all workers.
“The challenge for cities and the states is to find ways to create those jobs and make sure that the economy is not just focused on jobs,” Hovlland said.
“We need to make sure those are the jobs that are available to people.”
For example, many states, including New York state, have created new incentives for companies to hire skilled workers, with higher minimum wages and incentives for them to pay for health insurance.
The state has also created a state-funded workforce training program to help companies identify and recruit the best workers for new and existing jobs.
The program, called Career Jobs New York (CJNY), has trained more than 100,000 workers over the past three years, and has seen its share of companies invest more than $1.2 billion.
But with an estimated 1.5 million workers now working in manufacturing in New York alone, the city is struggling to meet demand.
“We are going to have to find a way to keep workers and the economy going,” said Peter Tkacznik, director of the Center for Worker-Owned Enterprises at the Institute for Policy Studies.
“And we have to get the people back to work, and to find new jobs that don’t involve manufacturing.”
For the industry that is poised to take off in New Jersey, this is a challenge for both the state government and the workforce.
One of the biggest barriers to job creation in the New Jersey economy is the state-wide unemployment rate.
According to data from the New Hampshire Department of Employment and Workforce Development, New Jersey has a national unemployment rate of 4.9 percent, a figure that is higher than any other state.
But according to a new report by the New England Labor Council, the New Jerseys’ unemployment rate is significantly higher than other states, with the rate in New England nearly twice as high as the national average.
The report, which found that the unemployment rate in the region is 12.6 percent, is more than four times higher than the national rate of 3.4 percent.
It’s also much higher than many other major industrial states.
In New York the unemployment is 25.2 percent, while in Pennsylvania it’s 7.2.
In the Northeast, New Hampshire’s unemployment rate stands at 10.4.
New Jersey is the only state to have a statewide unemployment rate higher than 5 percent, according to the labor council.
Despite this high unemployment rate, it’s not just the New Yorkers who are struggling to find jobs.
According a study by the Economic Policy Institute, the unemployment in the U.S. as a whole is still nearly double what it was in 1999.
The EPI found that only 1.6
