On a recent Monday afternoon, the parking lot at the job service office in Santa Ana is nearly full with cars of every description-- from old rusty junkers to shiny new Volvos. The cars are a reminder that while a recession hurts the poor most, hard times can reach out and strike nearly anyone. The manager is Mary E. Nelson, who--with nearly 30 years in state government--has seen recessions come and go.

NO ROOM AT THE LOT: By one not-very-scientific measure, Orange County is still mired in recession: Just try to get a parking space at the unemployment office in Santa Ana after 8 a.m. . . . These days, a "Lot Full" sign often goes up first thing in the morning at the 300-space parking lot, says Mary E. Nelson, manager of the office. "I wish I could give you some better news," says Nelson, who watched 6,800 more people file claims for unemployment insurance this January than last.

OK, so unemployment hit an eight-year high in Orange County in February at 5.6%, and, sure, even more recently the number of people coming in to file for unemployment is way up. But over at the Employment Development Department office in Santa Ana--the county's largest--state workers have noticed in the last week or so that the lines to file for unemployment benefits are getting shorter. Occasionally there is even an empty space or two out in the expansive parking lot off south Grand Avenue.

California's sharp rise in unemployment in September provides fresh evidence that the state's economic hangover is persisting and suggests that relief might not come until well into 1992, economists said Friday. Last month's increase in the state's jobless figure to 7.7% from 7.3% reverses two months of improvement and occurred as the nation's unemployment rate edged down slightly.
