Hayward, California

Hayward, California has a population over 144,000, making it the sixth largest city in the San Francisco Bay Area and the third largest in Alameda County. Cities bordering on Hayward are San Leandro, Union City, Fremont and Pleasanton. Hayward is home to several higher educational institutions including the main campus of California State University, East Bay (CSUEB), formerly known as California State University, Hayward; and Chabot College.

Among Hayward’s top employers are Kaiser Permanente, Chabot College, and Pepsi Beverages Company.

From the early 20th century until the early 1980s, Hayward's economy was dominated by its food canning industry. One notable cannery was Hunt Brothers Cannery, which opened in Hayward in 1895 by brothers William and Joseph Hunt. The Hunts initially packed local fruit, including cherries, peaches, and apricots, and then added tomatoes, which became the mainstay of their business. From the 1890s until its closure in 1981, Hunt's employed a large percentage of the local population. Much of the Bay coastal territory of Hayward was turned into salt ponds, with Oliver Salt and Leslie Salt operating there. In recent years, much of this land has returned to salt marshes.
