York, PA Employment Information

York, Pennsylvania Overview

York, Pennsylvania was once on track to become one of the country's largest cities. Today, it is the 14th largest city in the state. The early industrial boom that caused rapid growth still has an influence. It is a predominantly blue collar town that relies on manufacturing for jobs.

York played a crucial role in the American Revolutionary War. It was a temporary capital for the Continental Congress. Early founders of the United States also penned the Articles of Confederation in York. The Articles were later replaced by the U.S. Constitution.

People looking to relocate for jobs in York should know that the city has a cost of living index rated as 85, making it about 17 percent cheaper than Pennsylvania's average of 102 and 15 percent cheaper than the national average of 100. While it is relatively inexpensive to live in York, some necessary purchases cost more than others. Utilities, for instance, are 7 percent higher than the national average. Goods and services are 6 percent higher.
