Keeping and Creating Jobs
In today's economy, the state needs to be focused on adding jobs and improving California's business climate.
California's unemployment is at a 70-year high of 12.2%, and an estimated 2.2 million Californians are without a job. Staggeringly, economists tell us that 1 in 6 people, or 15% of our friends and neighbors, will be unable to find work in the near future. It's not surprising when Chief Executive Magazine rated California as the worst state in the nation for two years in a row in which to do business! This puts California lower than 49 other states.
Politicians in Sacramento pass bills every day that place job-killing regulations on businesses. These regulations force businesses to make tough decisions. In fact, a recent study by the governor found that these regulations have lost California over 3.8 million jobs.
* Very liberal politicians in Sacramento need to regard regulations as having real-world consequences.
* Relieving our 770,000 small businesses of these unrealistic regulations and taxes will allow us to create jobs for our future.
* I will continue fighting against any bill that will keep business from growing and stand up for bills that reduce red tape.
