SF needs strong jobs policy, says Chamber 

San Francisco is in dire need of a strong jobs policy that would expedite economic recovery, business leaders learned at the Chamber of Commerce CityBeat breakfast this morning.

According to local economists who spoke at the morning event, San Francisco will not recover from the recession until 2013, in part due to the high unemployment rate. However, venture capital investment continues to be strong here, with 38 percent of all national investment dollars coming into the Silicon Valley and Bay Area, according to local economists who presented at the event.

The chamber also released polling data that revealed San Francisco voters are more worried about the jobs and the local economy compared to last year, when homelessness topped the list of concerns.?
