Bay Area Counties Diverge

An interesting trend is splitting the Bay Area this spring. The four counties that ring the western, eastern and southern edges of the San Francisco Bay have seen strong employment growth over the past six months. The five northern and far eastern counties have seen employment trend downward. What’s separating them besides the Hayward Fault?20150608-poppies-DSD_5813_v201_v2

High-tech!

Alameda, San Francisco, Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties have seen employment growth of between roughly 3% and 9% over the past six months.

Their low-tech cousins in Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, Sonoma and Solano Counties have seen an average decline in employment of -2.7%.
