Update on MFG jobs vs the U.S.

Posted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on March 12, 2015

The Bureau of Labor Statistics and California's Employment Development Department recently made their annual revisions to employment data. California manufacturing still lags behind the country in manufacturing job growth since the recession, though the state did see a little bump comparatively to the country.

On the month-to-month front, California lost 4,200 manufacturing jobs in January. 

We ask you, is this reaching California's potential? Are we comfortable with this direction? The manufacturing renaissance is a tremendous moment of opportunity for California to leverage and grow opportunities for its middle class working families. As stated in this great National Association of Manufacturers video, "Nothing happens unless we hit that start button."
