Poverty rate: 19.8% (San Diego’s Top 10)
Major Employers
The three largest employers in the city are the University of California, San Diego (26,000
employees), County of San Diego (20,500 workers), United States Navy, San Diego (20,000
personnel) (San Diego’s Top 10).
Local Problems
The primary challenge in San Diego is high-cost of living. Many people in the city are unable to
sustain themselves because of their low wages when compared to the region’s cost of living. In a
recent article, John Wilkens reported that almost one-third of San Diego County working-age
households’ families are unable to comfortably pay their maintenance bills. Consequently,
thousands of people in the city live in economic insecurity and are constantly worried about their
next meal.
I encourage you to speak with Faulconer about the opportunities presented by San
Diego’s closeness to Silicon Valley and the region’s high population of skilled individuals who
can work in knowledge-based industries (Rogers). You may advise him to establish information
technology hubs in the city to create more employment opportunities for the locals. Moreover, he
can entice the companies in Silicon Valley to relocate to San Diego by giving them various
incentives.
Please contact me in case you need any clarification about the issues I have written. Enjoy your
trip to San Diego City.
