Mortgage industry grows, but not in N.Y.

From The Real Deal

The mortgage industry saw employment expand in 2009 following three years that amounted to more than 100,000 job losses, according to a fourth-quarter report from MortgageDaily.com, though the good news eluded the state of New York.

Last year saw the creation of a net 8,321 mortgage industry jobs countrywide, a major improvement over the 36,766 net jobs lost in 2008 and the 88,817 jobs the industry shed during 2007.
