Coast Employment Situation Looking Up, Survey Says

Although many large companies around the country are announcing major job cutbacks, that does not seem to be the case on the Coast.

The latest survey from Manpower Incorporated shows jobs will be plentiful here this spring.

  • 30 percent of the companies are planning on adding personnel.
  • 67 percent will stay with current levels.
  • 3 percent will probably cut back.

Those numbers are much better than the national average, with eight percent nationwide planning on cutting jobs.

Manpower conducts the survey on a quarterly basis.
