Carson Jobs for Carson Residents

Carson MapOn September 12, 2012, the City of Carson had 309 full time employees; of those 309 full time employees only 108 were Carson’s residents, 727 part time/seasonal positions 407 were Carson’s residents.

The numbers tell the whole story. Carson residents are suitable to hire for part time/seasonal work but, the full time positions seem to be for the most part reserved for non-residents.

California law prevents the city from requiring employees be residents. It does not prevent the city from hiring Carson residents.

There are 50 funded vacant positions at city hall and it is important for many reasons we fill those positions with Carson residents.

According to March 2013, Carson’s unemployment rate (10%) is higher than the national average (7.6%).

We need Carson Jobs for Carson Residents to reduce the unemployment rate in Carson.
