California Jobs September 2009: Shrinking

California continues to lose jobs.

The California Employment Development Department just released September numbers and California jobs declined by 39,300 during the month.  Unemployment was 12.2% for September, a slight improvement due to an upward revision of August to 12.3%

More unemployment is not a surprise considering all the problems the state has.  (See Why California is a Worst State for Jobs)

 

The Bureau of Labor Statisticsis is scheduled to release the nation’s September List of State Unemployment on Wednesday October 20.  August was bad news.  (See August 2009 Best and Worst States for Employment) California’s release on Friday is a preview of more state releases to come next week.

September should show more State Employment decreases as the September US Unemployment rate increased to 9.8% from 9.7%.

The LA Times ran a story California Job Losses Keep Climbing on Friday as well about the outlook for California Jobs.  Los Angeles County’s unemployment rate soared to 12.7% in September, upfrom 12.2% in August. Industries including leisure and hospitality,manufacturing and construction shed jobs over the month.  The Bay Area saw its unemployment rate decrease from August. The jobless rates in Napa County, at 8.7%,and the San Francisco-San Mateo-Redwood City Metro Division, at 9.2%,are among the lowest in the state. All five metro divisions in the Bay Area improved. California Jobs do not look like they will be improving significantly soon.  See also California Job Openings September 2009
