Jobs in Hayward, California, United States

Location and Population

Hayward is a city in Alameda County on the east side of San Francisco Bay. The population numbered around 159,000 in 2016, of which 39 percent foreign-born. The ethnic mix is comprised of Hispanics of all races (41%), Non-Hispanic Asians (26%), Non-Hispanic Whites (17%) and Non-Hispanic Blacks/African-Americans (10%). The median household income has increased significantly since 2000 and is now considerably higher than the statewide figure. Cost of living is quite high, but unemployment and poverty have remained stable at relatively low levels.

Origins

William Hayward arrived during the gold rush and soon bought a piece of land belonging to Guillermo Castro, where he built a hotel which opened in 1852. After Castro lost his remaining land in a card game in 1864, Hayward purchased another portion on which he later constructed a grand resort hotel. The city was devastated by an 1868 earthquake, but soon rebuilt. It grew throughout the late 19th century, with an economy based on agriculture and tourism which benefited from William Hayward’s influence as roads commissioner for Alameda County.

Economy

Agriculture remained important until the 1980s. Salt production began in 1872 and thrived for many years, but the last solar evaporation plant closed in 1982, due to rising land values. Hunt Brothers Cannery opened in 1895, packing fruit and pickles as well as tomatoes, but relocated to the Sacramento Valley in 1981, due to decline of Bay-area agriculture. Berkeley Farms dairy, in operation since 1910, still remains. Hayward also developed into an important industrial center during the 20th century. Since 2000 much of the industry has shut down and many blue collar jobs have disappeared. On the other hand, a number of companies have opened corporate headquarters in Hayward, and some newer enterprises requiring skilled labor, notably Impax Laboratories, Inc., a pharmaceuticals company, and Marelich Mechanical, wastewater management contractors, are economically important. The city, the school district, Chabot College, California State University, East Bay and St. Rose Hospital are other large employers.

Character

Hayward’s East Bay shoreline and panoramic views from the hills were the main draws for early tourists. The views are still breathtaking, but the city itself, built on the flatlands, is nondescript and slightly decayed. Hayward is within commuting distance of San Francisco via the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge (since 1929), and the BART metro station (since 1972). Housing costs are increasing, but Hayward is still economical compared to other nearby locations. Downtown is being slowly renovated, and residents cross the bay for culture and nightlife.
