The fake San Diego (and CA) jobs recovery

San Diego’s economy is rolling along — as county unemployment percentage improves dramatically!

Well, actually — not.

Here’s the story by the numbers:

BTW, to be defined as “employed,” one has to be working — but not much. Apparently even one hour of paid employment per week defines one as “employed” in the stats. Given the growing trend to hire fewer full-time employees — using part-timers to avoid healthcare costs and fines — our employment picture is likely even worse than these numbers indicate.
