Start of school year fuels California job growth in August

Public school teachers and staff returning to the classroom in August fueled another impressive month of job gains in California as officials said Friday that the state added another 104,300 jobs on its march to erase an unprecedented pandemic employment deficit. Government jobs accounted for nearly 45% of all job gains in California in August, reflecting the start of the public school year and the billions of dollars in federal pandemic relief money that has poured into state and local governments. Since February, California has gained an eye-popping 110,600 new jobs on average per month, according to the California Employment Development Department.
