Pa. labor official pitches jobs website during Reading visit

READING, Pa. - Berks County is still recovering from the recession.

The head of the state Department of Labor and Industry met with members of the Reading Chamber of Commerce at Reading Area Community College.

Julia Hearthway said the manufacturing and energy industries are seeing growth in Berks County.

"The Berks County area may be slightly behind other parts of the state, but if you look over the course of the trend of what Pennsylvania is doing, we're very steadily coming out of this recession," Hearthway said.

Labor officials are also encouraging job-seekers to check out a new job-matching website called the "JobGateway."
