Although reductions to unemployment rates were small in July, the rise in the actual number of jobs was more promising. Employment increased in 36 states and in Washington, D.C., over the month.

A recent report from the National Employment Law Project showed that low-wage jobs have in fact been created more quickly in the last five years, but that trend may be changing. The study revealed that, in the last six months, employment in high-paying positions has finally begun to climb.

According to the report, 48 percent of programming boot camp students were working full-time jobs before the course. This figure jumped to 63 percent after these individuals attended a boot camp.
