There are rumors that a significant number of jobs will be heading to San Diego relatively soon, which could be tremendous news for those who have been laid off and still looking for work. Even better is that contributing to the local economy and personal living conditions is one of the best things people can do for themselves psychologically, so these jobs could also mean an end to a lot of the depression that has been going around southern California lately.
San Diego employers plan to hire more people and lay off fewer in the second quarter of this year, a new study says.
The Manpower Employment Outlook surveys the same 120 local companies every three months, asking whether they plan to increase, decrease, or maintain staff levels.
In results released Tuesday, 19 percent said they planned to increase their amount of workers, up from 15 percent in the previous data. An additional 8 percent said they plan to decrease staffing (down from 9 percent last quarter), and 69 percent said they would maintain current levels (down from 71 percent last quarter). An additional 4 percent said they didn't know.
