Upswing In Local Education Jobs

Local government added 5,400 jobs between July of 2009 and July of 2010. That's according to the state Employment Development Department. But the majority of those jobs weren't at City Hall.
"Education actually accounted for most of the growth in government over the year."
EDD analyst Diane Patterson says school hirings are considered "government jobs." And she says one reason for the increase is - cash-strapped school districts are hiring more part-time employees.
"And while this is a cost-saving measure for schools, it could boost the number of employees on the payroll since the combined number of part-time and hourly employees may exceed the normal level of individual, fulltime employees." 
Meanwhile, Patterson says the federal government added 1,600 jobs in the Sacramento area over the past year…mostly because of the U.S. Census. But she adds the increases in local and federal government hiring helped to offset a 1,700 job decline in state government.
