While the Labor Department reported job growth of 288,000 jobs in June, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) estimates job growth for biomanufacturing technicians will be about 10 percent from 2012 to 2022. This should translate into 8,000 new jobs over the decade.

Hundreds of those jobs will be added in Massachusetts, the state with the highest number of biotech jobs per capita, according to Northeastern University’s Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy.
