September saw a pretty good bump up in San Francisco Bay Area employment and the labor force grew as well. See September 2016 Employments Trends here.
At odds with the monthly job growth is a recent article suggesting job cuts are coming at an increasing pace to the tech industry. I see lots of “Help Wanted” signs in coffee shop windows. Will high-tech to barista work well when you have a $3,500 per month rent payment? Don’t think so!
