According to a Jan 4 CBS report:
"In the past year, California has added 26,000 new information technology jobs. The construction industry is also booming with 26,400 new jobs, and tourism and hospitality has added 62,900.
New companies create most of the new jobs, and a recent study shows Los Angeles has the most entrepreneurs of any area in the country. That job growth is fueling consumer spending. Auto sales were up 14 percent last year. That's why true car is planning to add up to 100 more employees in 2013.
During the recession California was losing jobs to states with lower corporate and income taxes such as Texas. Since February California has created almost 234,000 jobs, more than Texas, Oregon and West Virginia combined."
Naturally, the California landscape is littered with anti-progressive neanderthals who deny the facts. "But facts are facts," stated a high placed administrator in Governor Brown's office. What is truly unfortunate is that the neanderthals want so badly the state to fail, that they are willing to lie about or ignore the very real data that is coming in.
