We updated our manufacturing employment numbers, comparing us to the nation.

Since January 2010, the country has seen 4.5 percent growth with 517,000 new manufacturing jobs, while California has been stagnant with the loss of 10,300 manufacturing jobs, about one percent of its manufacturing base.

That two-year trend seems to accelerate the gap that has been slowly growing over 12 years —  where California saw a 34 percent loss versus the nation’s 30 percent decline.
