Arizona’s employment is expected to grow slower in the next two years than it has in the past two.
New figures Thursday from the state Office of Economic Opportunity project Arizona will add 138,553 jobs between the second quarter of last year and the second quarter of 2018. That translates to 2.4 percent growth on an annualized basis.
By contrast, the similar figure for the prior two-year period was 2.6 percent a year.
