The Wall Street Journal reported this week:

“The nonprofit sector largely dodged massive job losses and weak wage growth experienced across most of the U.S. during the recession and first years of the economic recovery, new Labor Department data shows.

The nonprofit field, which is a cross-section of employment mainly in industries such as health care, social assistance, and religious and civic organizations, added jobs each year from 2008 through 2012, according to a new accounting released Friday. In contrast, the broader economy didn’t recover all the jobs lost during recession until earlier this year.
