WORKFORCE

As part of the greater Stockton-Lodi MSA, Lodi is able to offer an expanding labor force.  With unemployment rates consistently higher than national or state averages, Lodi can supply low cost, abundant and readily available labor from a skilled and semi-skilled employee pool.  Higher educational opportunities as well as customized and on-the-job training programs have effectively contributed to an experienced, reliable and productive workforce - trained to your specific needs.

Lodi's workforce benefits from a large labor pool supplied by the Greater Stockton~Lodi MSA area.  With a labor pool of 264,600 in December of 2001, unemployment in all of San Joaquin County was 9.7% compared to 5.7% statewide.  It should be noted that seasonal variation in the agricultural and food related industries, major contributors to Lodi's industrial mix, contribute too much of the County's unemployment totals.  The unemployment labor pool at the end of May 2002 totaled 24,000 persons.
