Southern California employment grows, except for Orange County, which loses 3,330 jobs in December

Almost 89,000 people were added to payrolls in Los Angeles County and the Inland Empire in 2018, according to data released Friday by the state Employment Development Department. Orange County saw a year-over-year decline in jobs, but it was a small one, with 3,300 jobs lost. All told, as 2018 came to an end, 7,774,500 people in Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino and Riverside counties were on payrolls. Here are some of the highlights from the jobs report, which is based on unrevised state data...

With LAUSD’s teachers ready to strike, Southern California school districts are watching

As nearly 30,000 teachers stand ready to take to the picket lines in the Los Angeles Unified School district on Monday, districts from the Inland Empire to Orange County will be watching. The strike might not inspire copycats, but the issues that have been brewing in L.A. —from class size to salary to the growth of charter schools to rising pension costs — are ringing familiar in places like San Bernardino, Santa Ana, San Gabriel Valley and other districts that neighbor the nation’s second large...

Diss Tracks Between So-Cal Latino Rappers Annimeanz & Yung Gritty Go Public

Been noticing an exchange of words between the camps of Annimeanz of Los Angeles, and Yung Gritty out the Inland Empire, formally known as Yung Blu. Soon after Annimeanz called out Yung Gritty for having a ghostwriter and accepting a studio session on his terms with fellow label mate Young Note, due to high tensions the real live session appeared not to happen. Instead the diss tracks are out from both respective artists exclusively on LatinBeastTV. It’s for the public to decide who bodied who,...

Local inflation hits at 12-year high, widest gap with U.S. cost-of-living increases since 1980

Inflation in Los Angeles and Orange counties rose at its highest rate in 12 years as it outpaced national inflation by the widest gap in 38 years. According to my trusty spreadsheet, local consumer prices rose 3.8 percent last year vs. 2.8 percent in 2017, and it’s the fastest inflation pace since 2006. These price upswings are a bit startling, at least by CPI math, as local inflation averaged 1.3 percent between 2009 and 2016. That was the slowest pace of increase for the region’s cost-of-livin...

How transgender inmates are treated has become a problem for police, so here’s what’s being done about it

Complaints from two transgender women who were housed on the male floor of the Long Beach City Jail have spurred local police to establish a new policy on the proper treatment of transgender people who’ve been taken into custody or who are encountered by officers in the field. The new policy marks the latest move among law enforcement agencies in Southern California and elsewhere to develop guidelines to protect the rights and safety of the often-vulnerable transgender population in the criminal...

Under new law, training on transgender issues, sexual orientation will be required of many seeking to become law enforcement officers

Those training to become law enforcement officers and public safety dispatchers in California will soon learn about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities in the academy under legislation signed by Gov. Jerry Brown last year. Assembly Bill 2504, which was authored by Assemblyman Evan Low (D-Cupertino), also ensures optional LGBTQ-specific educational training for officers already on the job. The law went into effect Jan.1. Members of the LGBTQ community “want to be accepted and feel ...

Radio: Pioneering DJ Art Laboe to be honored at broadcasters’ luncheon

He was among the first DJs to play rock ‘n’ roll records on the radio in Southern California. He was among the first to do listener dedications on the radio. He was the man who coined the term “oldies but goodies” and later launched a record company dedicated to the preservation of those tunes. And in 2018 he celebrated 75 continuous years on the air. And in 2019, this legendary DJ — Art Laboe — will be honored by the Pacific Pioneer Broadcasters at their Feb. 1 luncheon, to be held at 12 noon a...

The next housing crisis

Little over a decade ago, the housing sector almost brought down not only the American but the world economy. Today the reprise of the housing decline will be playing a very different tune. In the past bust, it was the fast-growing exurbs, aspirational home of the middle and working classes, that imploded, driving millions of people into foreclosure. Aided by dicey lending practices from the private sector, devastation was most precipitous in states such as California where public policy helped ...

Sacramento can’t bet on perpetual prosperity

In Sacramento, the talk is all about big budget surpluses — and big new spending. But across the state, signs of an economic downturn are strengthening. Combined with investors’ worries around the world and a disturbing picture is emerging. California’s public officials might enjoy taking it to President Trump on the economy, but they have no plan to change ideological course to fit more difficult times. The Golden State’s fortunes may have already peaked for a while. The new UCLA economists’ an...

Metrolink is keeping the 25 percent discount on tickets along the San Bernardino-to-LA line

A ride on a Metrolink train can pack a wallop in the wallet many times greater than the cost of a seat on a light-rail train or an express bus. That’s changing. Metrolink, the more luxurious train option for Southern California commuters, is keeping a 25 percent discounted promotional fare at least through 2019 on the commuter rail’s San Bernardino-to-Los Angeles line as a way to draw more riders. This follows decisions in January 2018 when the board made a discounted fare on the 91/Perris Valle...

Home flipping hits 3-year low – another signal the housing market is losing heat?

Home flips across the U.S. have hit their lowest level in more than three years. Flips were down 12 percent in the 3rd quarter of 2018 from a year ago at that time, hitting a 3.5 year low, an analysis from Irvine-based Attom Data Solutions shows. It was the lowest number since the first quarter of 2015. “Home flipping acts as a canary in the coal mine for a cooling housing market because the high velocity of transactions provides home flippers with some of the best and most real-time data on how...

Reports: Southern California economy in transition, with jobs lost to automation amid an aging, shrinking workforce

Southern California’s economy continues to power forward, but technology, shifting demographics and a persistent housing shortage have changed the way the region does business, according to a series of new economic reports. The studies, prepared by area economists for the Southern California Association of Governments, show that Los Angeles County, Orange County and the Inland Empire have reached historic levels of business and job growth. In fact, the six counties represented by SCAG (which als...

So Cal counties will host public forums on sheriffs’ cooperation with ICE

Four counties in Southern California plan to hold forums in the coming month to tell the public how jail officials in their communities worked with federal immigration agents. Cooperation between law enforcement and federal immigration agencies is regulated in California, as part of the state’s controversial sanctuary laws, some of which took effect early this year. Annual public forums, with law enforcement discussing the ways – including legal interactions – that sheriff’s departments, police ...

Town halls helped shape the midterm. Will they in 2020?

Early after the election of President Donald Trump, a small but vibrant part of America’s political debate played out in old-school, face-to-face events involving elected representatives and the constituents who pay their salaries, events also known as town halls. And the conflicts that often erupted in those town halls – scenes often recorded on video and posted to the Internet – helped shape the results of the 2018 midterms. Except when they didn’t. In the past 12 months or so, many elected re...

With Prop 10 dead, what’s next for California renters?

Rising rents, a growing renter population, and heartrending stories about evictions and displacement meant this should have been a good year to ask Californians to loosen restrictions on rent control. But the measure allowing greater protections for renters, Proposition 10, failed miserably at the polls. What now? Advocates haven’t given up. They see a political ally in Gov.-elect Gavin Newsom and strength from an expanding coalition of groups supporting tenant rights. Pressure on tenants remain...

Ontario airport surpasses Atlanta to become nation’s busiest outbound freight hub

Ontario International Airport has always been a busy freight hub, but for at least one month it was the nation’s busiest for outbound shipments.
