0.8% job growth year over year.

The rate would have been 0 or a bit below if it weren't for the massive amount of government spending and rampant health problems in the city as the healthcare employment growth was 2.9%.

The only other sector with growth of more than 1% was people going to restaurants and hotels and the debt related finance sector.

The highly touted information sector grew at exactly 0 year over year employment wise.

According to the OP's own link, the unemployment rate as of October in metro LA was 4.1%, which was actually the same as the national average.

And BTW, since the OP loves to compare anything in California to North Dakota so much, the 0.8% job growth in Los Angeles over the past year beats the 0.4% job growth in North Dakota over the past year:

No doubt that North Dakota has gone through a rough patch lately with the lower oil, natural gas and commodities prices but despite that they still have positive job growth.

Fargo has year over year job growth of 1.5% which is decent.

Los Angeles though in general to drum up even 0.8% job growth year over year did that mainly with cyclical construction spending, big increases in hospital employment thanks to large amounts of government deficit spending.

I am for all for Medicare, Medicaid and VA health spending but sort of interesting that to keep job growth above 0 that Los Angeles is reliant on health care deficit money.

Looks like the high minimum wages are impacting leisure and hospitality as the job growth for that is 0.8% year over year.

The minimum wage is $12 an hour there so it looks like even with the huge economic bubble that job growth in that sector is basically zero.

If it weren't for a handful of RED counties, BLUE Kalifornia would be in worst shape than Puerto Rico.
