Logistics describes the combination of trucking, warehousing, freight forwarding, customs brokering and distribution that now employs 157,530 people in the region's six counties.

A low-wage, unskilled labor force is a significant shadow on the resounding good cheer ringing through economic forecasts from every county in Southern California. Because so much of the region's work is low-wage--in apparel, warehousing, retail trade--Southern California still holds back California's overall economic recovery, says economist Mark Schniepp of UC Santa Barbara.

California employers added a substantial 29,700 jobs in November, keeping the state's economic recovery chugging along and nudging down the state's unemployment rate to 6.9% from a revised 7% in October, officials reported Friday. Los Angeles County, one of the weak spots in the state's economic comeback, showed improvement too, with its jobless rate edging down to 7.6% last month from a revised 7.8% in October.

A pair of Cal State Long Beach economists have predicted a two-year spurt in the number of jobs in Southern California. In a report released Thursday, the team forecast 280,000 new jobs in the region by the end of 1997, with Riverside and San Bernardino counties providing the quickest economic growth. Employers can expect an end to the slump in manufacturing, financial services, insurance and real estate, according to Lisa Grobar and Peter Griffin.

Hooray for Hollywood--it may be providing as many jobs in Southern California as aerospace-defense ever did. But it's hard to be certain, because statistics vary widely. California's Employment Development Department says there are 147,500 jobs in the motion picture industry, including television, up 12.5% over the last year and nine months. Others, such as the state's Department of Finance, believe job growth has been more rapid and that motion picture jobs now total 172,000.

The answer is new opportunity springing from defense technology--although that's an answer that many will be skeptical of.
