The New York I Remember:

[...]from 2003 to 2007, the securities industry accounted for 59 percent of the growth in wages and salaries in the city, according to the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, even though it makes up only 6 percent of all private-sector employment.

Ronnie Lowenstein, Director, Independent Budget Office, Interviewed in the New York Times, February 15, 2009.

Go figure...
