Health care again adds jobs

Health care added jobs in July (as it has continued to do) according to the latest BLS report (pdf).  Two reactions:

  1. Good.  We need employers to add jobs.
  2. It increases health care costs, especially not such a good thing as the economy continues to struggle.

The Health Blog reports that total health care employment has risen from 13.3 million to 13.6 million jobs, with grown seen throughout the industry.
