Jobs & the Economy

  • California is the sixth largest economy in the world.  With seemingly boundless economic diversity across industries, we still have 15% of our population living below the poverty line ($24,000 for a family of 4).  In both the African American and Native American communities, the poverty rate exceeds 22%.
  • We can reward employers who, instead of moving out of state, choose to stay and employ our talented workforce.  Offer discounted state fees and/or taxes to help offset any savings they might have gained from moving their business out of California. 
  • Create robust job re-training programs to meet the needs of the burgeoning clean-energy jobs of the future.  Assure trade schools and community colleges are prepared to deliver graduates ready to step into sustainable, high-paying jobs of this new economy.
  • California must prevent the privatization of government services and outsourcing of public sector jobs. 
  • Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy and job creation.  We need to assure small business owners have access to capital and cut excessive red tape and regulation.
