SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Sacramento gets a D-plus for small-business friendliness, improving from three past years of F grades.

The Sacramento Bee reports (https://bit.ly/1IIP3p5) the grades were released Tuesday by San Francisco-based Thumbtack, a company that runs an online marketplace where consumers hire service providers. Sacramento placed in the 10 lowest rankings out of 95 U.S. cities.

The city’s C grade for training and networking programs was the highest achieved out of 10 categories, with F grades in categories like employment and regulations as well as health and safety.

California earned an F grade last year and did so again in 2015.

Thumbtack compiled its rankings report using interviews with less than 18,000 owners of small businesses in the country, 209 of which were in Sacramento.
