The retailing industry is growing faster than any other industry in America.
The industry is adding jobs and is helping to keep pace with rising incomes, according to a new report from the Economic Policy Institute.
The report, The Numbers, is based on a survey of 2,000 retail and wholesale workers and found that nearly 3 million U.S. workers have been employed in the industry over the past decade.
The retail and grocery sector employs nearly 3.6 million people.
“We’re still growing faster in this industry than any of the other sectors,” said Steve Shulman, director of the EPI’s Bureau of Labor Statistics.
“The numbers are a big indicator of how fast growth is going.”
The number of jobs is growing at the fastest pace in retail and food services, the report found, with the average annual growth rate in the retail and retail food services industries being 1.4%.
Retail is a broad category encompassing apparel, furniture, apparel, food services and health care.
The average annual gain in the number of retail and non-retail workers in retail since 2005 has been 1.5%.
The average annual percentage gain in non-Retail employment in the same time period is 1.9%.
The report found that more than a quarter of U. S. retail workers in the food service and grocery sectors are women, and women make up nearly one-third of the workforce.
The survey also found that grocery stores have seen the fastest increase in the size of their workforce in the past 15 years.
There were more than 4 million people employed in grocery stores in 2013, up from 1.1 million people in 2004.
The growth has been driven by an increase in staffing levels, with an average of 2.1 workers per store.
The retail food service sector added an average 4,700 people in the 10 years through the end of 2013, while the food services retail industry added nearly 3,400.
The average increase in food service jobs in the U.A.E. since 2005 was 7 percent, according the report.
The food service industry is expected to continue adding jobs, Shulmann said.
“I think it’s going to continue to be a growth industry in this country, and it will be a good economy overall.”
Shulman noted that the growth of the food and beverage industry has been fueled by growth in the health care and health services industries.
He noted that as health care costs have skyrocketed in the United States, so has the demand for health care workers, who have become more expensive to recruit.
“The health care market is growing so fast, and so fast that we have a lot of workers who are not as willing to do health care as they used to be,” Shulmen said.
Food service jobs are expected to be more evenly spread across the country, he added.
Shulmans report is based off the retail workers survey.
The report also finds that while women are the most likely to be in retail, men are still more likely to work in the sector.
According to the report, the median age of a retail and the median salary of a food service worker is 47 years old, compared to 50 years old for a food services worker.
Shulmen pointed out that the retail industry is already a “hot” sector with a variety of factors contributing to growth.
“A lot of the retail jobs are low-paying, and we are seeing that,” he said.
Shulson pointed out some of the reasons for the growth in retail.
“People want more flexibility,” he added, noting that the number and number of hours that workers can work have grown.
“And they want more freedom in their lives, which means more opportunities for them to go out and meet other people and meet new people.”
