Posted March 16, 2018 11:57:25 California has lost more than 3,100 full-time jobs in the past five months, as the state continues to struggle with a sluggish economy.
According to a new report from the American Community Survey, the state has lost a total of 3,037 full- and part-time employment jobs since January of 2018.
In 2017, the same period, California had a total job loss of 4,637.
While the state still has a long way to go to regain full employment, the data highlights a trend that is continuing to be felt throughout the nation.
As the nation enters the second half of 2018, more and more companies are cutting jobs in order to make room for new hires, according to the report.
According the American Communities Survey, California is currently losing about a quarter of its full-timers.
According to the American FactFinder, the percentage of California residents working full- or part-timed is at its lowest point since 2008.
