A USA Today article, entitled, “Service Businesses Lead Uneven Jobs Recovery”
quoted Scott Moore, senior manager -
college & university initiatives at the American Institute of CPAs. The article refers to the bounce back of certain sectors with regards to employment after the most recent financial crisis. According to USA Today sectors such as department stores, manufacturing, and construction are very far from recouping the losses they once suffered. However, accounting firms have regained 87% of the jobs they lost. Moore attributes these positive numbers to startup businesses and financial rules that have allowed easier expansion abroad for U.S. Companies.
