Bay Area Home To 746k Tech Jobs
The Bay Area now hosts 746,000 tech jobs, a number that surpasses the previous record established during the late '90s at the height of the dot-com bubble. Experts believe the tech sector will be resilient despite murmurs of a tech slowdown.
About 20% of payroll jobs in the region are in the tech sector, according to the San Jose Mercury News. The job growth presents cities across the Bay Area with a dilemma: While the jobs pay well and grow tax receipts, they also bring with them traffic congestion and stretch housing thin.
