San Diego employment continues to increase as total non-farm employment grew by 48,200 jobs, or 3.6 percent year-over-year. July’s jobs report is welcome news and signals that growth is back on track after the recession.
Employment gains were led by the professional and business services sector followed by leisure and hospitality. These sectors combined added a total of 21,100 jobs. Conversely, other services was the only sector to suffer a loss in employment, losing a total of 200 jobs year-over-year.
