During the first two months of 2012 alone, New Jersey created more than half the number of jobs it did during all of last year, according to new data released yesterday from the state Department of Labor and Workforce Development.
In January and February, employers in the state added a net total of 17,500 non-farm jobs. Last year’s tally came to 33,400 new jobs in the private sector.
