The county's two largest cities, Los Angeles and Long Beach, reported unemployment rates of 4.6 percent and 4.7 percent respectively. "Not only has unemployment decreased, but private sector employment has skyrocketed to an all time high for our great state".

In the lower wage sectors of the economy, slowdown in job growth is already evident as wages rise. MA posted 3.6 percent, Rhode Island 4.3 percent, and CT 4.8 percent. "Colorado's population is growing at twice the national average, so we are better off than other states are".

Job growth in South Florida was driven in March by gains in construction, education and healthcare, and the category of workers that includes lawyers, accountants, architects and advertisers.
