Winemaking job activity rose by 12% in May compared to last May. This subcategory hasn’t dipped since October 2013.
Hospitality jobs dropped 3% from a year ago in May, after being up 56% in April. The slowing may reflect that wineries work hard to staff up in advance of the May-October visitor season.
