Forecast: Calif. to outpace nation in job growth

LOS ANGELES (AP) — California will continue to outpace the nation in job growth over the next few years, narrowing an unemployment rate gap in a slow but uneven economic recovery that will leave unskilled workers behind. A UCLA Anderson Forecast released Thursday says the state's unemployment rate will average 8.9 percent this year —compared with 7.6 for the U.S. as a whole — but it will drop by a percentage point in 2014 and another in 2015. The report said the national unemployment rate will remain lower, but California will narrow that gap as it has continued to do for more than a year. Real personal income growth will be 1.9 percent this year — beating the U.S. figure of 1.4 percent — and it will surge to 3.3 percent in 2014 and 2015, which is almost equal to the U.S. figure.
