There's good news for people looking for a job in California. 

California is in the top ten on a new list of states with the most non-agricultural job growth.

"In spite, I think, an image of a state that has high taxes and lots of regulations they came in at position No. 3," Dr. Lee McPheters said. 

McPheters is a research professor with the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University.  

He ranked the top ten states and cities for non-agricultural job growth from 2012 to last year. 

A number of important sectors are driving the economy. Of course, construction has come back strong in California. Health care is an important source of job growth," McPheters said.
