California employers added just 8,200 net new jobs in September, a gain much lower than in recent months, the state Employment Development Department said Friday.
California had added an average of about 41,000 jobs each month over the past year, making September's gain small in comparison. Still, the state's job market has expanded at a 2.8% rate over the last year, faster than the 2% growth rate for the U.S. overall.
