CBPP: "States and localities have eliminated 671,000 jobs since employment peaked in August 2008"

State and Local Job Cuts Continue, Especially in Education

Todays jobs report shows that in August, cuts by states and local governments especially school districts wiped out private-sector job gains.

The state and local sector cut 15,000 jobs in August. That comes on top of a whopping 66,000 jobs lost in July, according to revised figures released today the worst single month of job loss for states and localities since the recession began in December 2007. States and localities have eliminated 671,000 jobs since employment peaked in August 2008 (see first graph).

Not coincidentally, July was also the first month of the new fiscal year for most states, one in which they are facing the double-whammy of weak revenues (which remain well below pre-recession levels) and the expiration of temporary federal aid.
