Why Not California #14Posted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on Dec. 1, 2010
As we approach 2011, we took a quick look back at manufacturing growth and decline in the two biggest states in the west in 2010. Looks like Texas grabbed new high wage manufacturing jobs at a clip of 1,100 per one million of its citizens, while California LOST approximately 32 jobs per one million of its own hard workers. Ouch.
These 2010 numbers, combined with California's 34% manufacturing decline over the last decade, and statements like the following in a recent Reuters article should be "ground zero" for the state's new Legislature and Governor in 2011.
"The first order of business for rookie Republican governors taking office in the coming weeks will be to make their states more 'business friendly' by cutting taxes and regulations.
