California’s August Job Gains Are Another Win
- August was another solid month for job additions in California, with employers creating 44,800 positions.
- The August increase was more than two-and-a-half times the gain seen over the last two years, confirming 2018’s strong labor market. In the last year, California has added a total of 348,900 jobs.
- Considering the robust job increases recorded over the summer, California’s 2.1 percent employment growth is again trending above the national rate of 1.6 percent.
- San Francisco and San Mateo counties added 2,800 jobs from July, and the unemployment rate dropped to 2.3 percent in August.
