In case you missed it last week, Bee colleague Phillip Reese pulled some California data from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis that shows state and local government employees' personal income fell 2.6 percent last year.
Construction workers took the biggest hit, with income down 10.4 percent. Personal income for employees in the finance industry dropped 2.2 percent.
Other industries saw pay increases, from manufacturing (up 1.8 percent) to technology (up 5.8 percent).
Hat tip to long-time Blog User K for the friendly reminder about this data.
