Technology firms shed 4,100 jobs over the past two years, a 2.9 percent decline in total tech employment, said Kelly Cunningham, an economist with National University. Overall, though, San Diego employers laid off 101,000 workers during the same period, a 7.6 percent drop.
“Second quarter data shows technology jobs continued to decline, although the losses significantly leveled off,” said Cunningham.
