Survey Indicates Increase in Hiring in 4th Quarter

August 29, 2000

A new survey says 40% of San Fernando Valley companies plan to hire workers in the fourth quarter, compared with 26% with hiring plans for the same quarter last year.

The survey by Manpower Inc. of Milwaukee said 3% of the companies foresee cuts, 50% anticipate no changes and 7% are undecided.

For the fourth quarter of 1999, 26% of Valley employers surveyed said they planned to increase staff and 5% said they would trim their payrolls.

The survey predicts local openings in construction, manufacturing, transportation and public utilities, trade, education, services and public administration.
