LA County's Job Recovery Isn't What It Seems

Los Angeles County says they recovered jobs lost during the recession, but at what cost?

A new report says tens of thousands of high paying manufacturing and finance jobs were lost and low paying service jobs surged.

Over a ten year period, 35,000 jobs in accounting, finance, architecture and engineering were cut. 

These jobs paid an average $85,000 in 2007.

The report also says 2016 had 4.4 million jobs, a 2.1% increase from 2015. 

The county added 92,000 thousand jobs in the food service industry and 49,000 in in-home support services.

The average wage for these jobs ranged from $14,000-$20,000.
