The Union has this article: Nevada County unemployment up — jobs are too
The Nevada County Business News was in the mail box today, when I picked up the mail after a two week trip to Arizona. As regular readers know, I have been tracking the employments numbers in the SBN since 2008.
Here are the results which shows that jobs are declining in Nevada County. If you remove the 95 ski industry jobs, the drop would be even greater than he 16 job decline in the Top 50 Employers.
If employment is up in the Union article, it is the low paying service jobs associated with the ski industry, not the high paying jobs need to sustain the local economy. As you can see job growth in our top 50 employers is essentially flat. According to EDD, Nevada County Unemployment is now 10.1, up from 9.9 in January and 9.6 in December of 2011. This is negative trend. So, were is the jobs growth? They do not show up in the Top 50.
