The latest newsletter from the California Economic Forecast

 

By Dennis Meyers

The May 2012 newsletter by Mark Schniepp at The California Economic Forecast provides a great illustration of the importance of technology employment to the state’s economic recovery.

“Much of the job creation in California this year has been the result of large gains in hiring in computer design, semiconductor manufacturing, information technologies, and scientific and technical research.”

“Over the last 2 years, more than 13,000 tech jobs have been added in Santa Clara County.  Employment in the manufacture of semiconductors is currently at the highest level in ten years.”

  1. I hate to be snarky, but doesn’t the rise in high-wage tech jobs lead to things like this–http://www.alternet.org/economy/155242/why_the_rich_are_sending_pets_on_a_diamond-studded_trip_to_the_afterlife
    –rather than, uh, more useful and remunerative employment.
