Manufacturing growth: CA and Los Angeles lagging far behind the U.S.Posted by Gino DiCaro, Vice President, Communications on May 22, 2012
CMTA looked at the growing lag of manufacturing growth in California after the California Labor Market Information Department's numbers last week showed a loss of 4,100 California manufacturing jobs in April. You'll see in the chart below that, for the past two years, the U.S. has attracted 4.3 percent growth in the critical sector and outpaced a stagnant California. The largest manufacturing county (MSA), Los Angeles, actually suffered a 3.7 percent loss.
