In January, the county lost 17,400 jobs, led by 4,300 retail jobs, 2,900 in hotels and bars and 700 in casinos, amusement parks and other entertainment venues. Such job losses are common at this time of year. In fact, Kelly Cunningham, economist with National University’s Institute for Policy Research, said the county lost fewer of those jobs this year than normal.
