According to the latest data from the California Employment Development Department (EDD), employment in the county grew by another 2,500 during December – to 940,800. That's only 4,800 jobs below the pre-pandemic total of 945,600 in December 2019, and represents one of the fastest recovery rates in California.

Joblessness fell to 5.2% in December – the lowest rate since March 2020. The improved jobs picture is being led by a continued surge in hiring among companies serving the supply chain and the hospitality industry.
