40% Of Working Age Californians Have No Job

Recommended Posts

but don't we always say on here that the ideal is a one-income household being able to afford a house and family? If everyone was in this situation then the figure would be 50% 'unemployment'- so maybe california is living our dream?! I don't doubt it's bad, i have a relative working in construction management in california, but we have to learn to question what every stat actually means rather than just blindly jumping to the conclusion that the author usually intends.

And right next to a story about a report where 2 in 5 of working age adults don't have work we have these properties advertised <_<

1160 Tournament Dr, Hillsborough

to this

150 New Place Rd, Hillsborough

Population age breakdown fascinated me for one of those properties. More people over 70 than 21-30. Most of the population is too old or too young to work. :blink:

It's 2 out of 5 of working age are actively looking for work. Those that aren't actively looking for work aren't counted

Not sure that's right, I think they've just subtracted the employment rate from 100%, which would make the employment rate about 60%. At the moment it's under 73% here and falling fast... I would guess that California is a vision of our future.
