SD unemployment rate down to 4.8 percent

AlexClarke: We don't know how many of the jobs were full-time with benefits. Unemployment data do not capture that. You make a very good point. According to, the median monthly rents are a whopping $2330, up by 5.1 percent over the last year. Of 34 major metro areas, only three have higher rents: L.A. $2,498; San Francisco $3,162, and San Jose $3,287. San Jose rents shot up 12.9 percent in the last year. And yet the San Diego business community opposes a rise in the minimum wage. Best, Don Bauder
