Labor By the Numbers

Jobs Forecast for 2019 Department of Labor and Workforce Development. 

High expectations for tourism will spur growth in the transportation on and warehousing, mainly in the waterbased scenic and sightseeing transportation on the category (500 jobs). A strong visitor season will also boost leisure and hospitality, which is expected to add about 500 jobs. Many of those will be tied to the three new hotels that will open in Anchorage this year.
