Two Colorado metros ranked among the Top 10 nationally for job growth last year. And sorry Denver, Boulder and Greeley, you didn’t qualify.
Colorado Springs had a 5.5-percent gain in nonfarm jobs between December 2017 and December 2018, which ranked fourth out of 388 metros, according to a survey from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Not far behind was Fort Collins, in the ninth spot, with a growth rate of 4.4 percent. Fort Collins last month made a repeat showing at the top of a list of the nation’s most dynamic economies.
