The City of Worcester added 4,000 jobs in the month of April and a total of 5,300 jobs over the year, according to the Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development. 

Worcester is one of 15 areas in the state that saw job gains and is among six areas that recorded the largest job gains. 

The other areas are Boston-Cambridge-Newton, Springfield, Barnstable, Lowell-Billerica-Amesbury, and Framingham.
