A jobs report released this month shows San Luis Obispo County is challenged when it comes to the number of high-paying positions available.
Last year, the SLO County Workforce Investment Board partnered with BW Research Partnership, Inc. to conduct a study on the local economy.
The report found the county has had a strong recovery in terms of total employment, exceeding the numbers of neighboring Central Coast counties.
However, the report also found SLO County has a disproportionate number of jobs in the lowest-paying tier of employment, when compared with the State of California or the rest of the nation.
