Solano residents appear to be finding work outside the county – or are they?
There were 143,500 jobs within Solano County in July, down from the prior month’s total of 144,800, the EDD reported. However, there were 1,000 more residents working – 192,600 in July compared to 191,600 in June, the Labor Market Information Division of the state Employment Development Department reported.
The job decline inside the county is due to the seasonal drop in local education jobs for the month prior to school gearing back up, again.
In fact, if the drop of 1,800 local education jobs is factored out, the local market actually created 500 new jobs, the EDD reported.
