California not keeping up with country in terms of manufacturing jobs

California not keeping up with country's manufacturing growth

California lost another 2,200 manufacturing jobs in March, according to today's Labor Market Information Department (LMID) report. After a 33 percent loss of the state's industrial base over the last decade, the larger concern for the California Manufacturers & Technology Association is an emerging trend in the country's manufacturing growth numbers.

Over the last two years California has increasingly lagged the U.S. in terms of new industrial jobs. Since 2010 the U.S. grew it's manufacturing employment by 4 percent and a total of 470,000 jobs, while California remains stagnant with only .03 percent growth.
