​​SAN ANTONIO - Unemployment in the San Antonio metropolitan area was at 3.7 percent in September 2015 — right where it was the month prior. And despite the leisure and hospitality industry eliminating 6,000 positions last month, the region enjoyed a net gain of 4,400 jobs.

Total non-agricultural employment in the San Antonio-New Braunfels Metropolitan Statistical Area grew 5 percent in September to 987,200 jobs, according to a report from Workforce Solutions Alamo.

Year to date, the region’s job total has increased nearly 4 percent from the same period in 2014.

While the leisure and hospitality industry reduced its workforce in September due to seasonal adjustments, employment in that sector is up 4.5 percent for the year, with a net gain of 5,300 jobs.

The largest gains were reported in the local government and education/health services sectors, which added 5,500 and 1,700 jobs, respectively, in September.

The construction industry has experienced an 11.1 percent boost in jobs year to date, making it the fastest-growing sector in the region, according to Workforce Solutions Alamo officials.
