Bay Area adds jobs in July — but pace of job gains slows drastically

The Bay Area added jobs during July — but the pace at which the region gained employment slowed significantly from recent months, state labor officials reported Friday.

The nine-county region gained 3,900 jobs in July, an improvement that was fueled primarily by a robust upswing in the East Bay and the South Bay, according to the new report posted by the state Employment Development Department.

The East Bay added 2,900 jobs while the South Bay gained 2,100 positions. The San Francisco-San Mateo region, however, lost 2,000 jobs. All of the numbers were adjusted for seasonal volatility.
