Job Market Perspective

The U.S. economy in the third quarter grew at its fastest pace in two years, demonstrating pronounced improvement from the first half of the year. This growth can be attributed to continued strength in consumer spending and improvements in manufacturing, trade and energy sectors. Economic growth in the fourth quarter is expected to remain on par with third quarter performance, although the tight labor force could potentially hinder growth in certain markets. National unemployment remained steady at 5 percent, while unemployment rates in Southern California and the state as a whole has hovered in the four to five percent range. Although the election and stock market volatility has had a negative effect on the national psyche, the American economy has remained resilient and is still on the same trajectory since the recession ended.
