Online job ads slide in Sacramento, state

Job vacancies advertised online in Sacramento and throughout California slid last month, matching a nationwide trend of generally woeful labor demand.

The Conference Board, the New York-based business research group, said this week that 28,400 ads were posted in Sacramento in June, down 8 percent from 30,900 in May and nearly 7 percent from 30,500 in June 2015.

Statewide, 537,000 ads were posted in June, a 7.9 percent fall from 582,900 in May and down about 8.5 percent from 586,600 in June last year.

Nationally, online advertised job vacancies fell 226,700 to 4.65 million between May and June. That came on the heels of a decline of 285,800 between April and May.
