California lagging industrial states in manufacturing growth

Posted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on Aug. 21, 2012

California lost 3,100 more manufacturing jobs in the month of July, according to last week's Labor Market Information Department report. Since 2010 California has continually lagged the rest of the country and other industrial states in critical high wage manufacturing job growth. Comparatively, California has been stagnant while the country grew at more than four percent and industrial states averaged about 5.8 percent growth.

Looking at the graph I see that California is ranking below sea level compare to the rest of the states except for NY NJ. Why is California at the bottom, for that we have to thank 40 years of democratic malfeasance in Sacramento. Businesses are moving out for a simple reason, California totally unfriendly business climate. The out of touch out control politicians tax and spend.
