Hub Adds Construction Jobs; Let's Hear It for Bike Safety

HUB-WIDE—There are more hardhats in the Hub as of late: "The Bay State saw construction jobs fall by one percent over the 12 month period, to 111,600 from a total of 113,200 jobs for the previous year — a loss of 1,600 jobs. Greater Boston and Cambridge area fared better with the addition of 5,200 jobs over the past year, a 10 percent hike." [Biz Journal]

BOSTON—Oh, now it's official alright: "On Thursday, City Councilors Ayanna Pressley and Felix Arroyo filed a motion for a hearing to explore ways to improve bike infrastructure in Boston and make it a more 'liveable city.'" [BostInno]
