Improving Personal Finances Elevate Boston Worker Confidence

Thursday, March 08, 2007

Worker confidence rose in Boston in February, as the city’s Hudson Employment Index (SM) jumped 7.7 points to 105.7. This is the highest the Index has been for Boston in a year and a half. More workers feeling better about their finances, coupled with fewer workers worrying about losing their job drove the increase. Boston’s latest measure of worker confidence is almost five points higher than last February, when the city’s Index registered 100.7. The composite Index, which is based on responses from approximately 9,000 workers nationwide, rose 2.9 points this month to 107.1.
