California Employment Data

The Golden State has one of the largest economies in the world. It is also incredibly diverse. Historically, the state has had a large population separated from the industrial heartland of the Eastern U.S.; therefore, it had to develop an economy that was largely self-sustaining. It has the largest agricultural sector in the country, as well as well-known technology and entertainment industries. (Source: California Department of Finance)
