Its not all doom and gloom for the Golden State.

According to the same report used by the OP, San Jose currently has a higher job creation rate than Houston and Dallas!

Job Growth, 9/2009-9/2010
1 Austin +2.43%
2 Oklahoma City +2.38%
3 Charleston, SC +2.37%
4 Augusta, GA +2.01%
5 McAllen-Edinburg, TX +1.98%
6 Washington DC +1.52%
7 San Jose +1.48%
8 Phoenix +1.46%
9 Cleveland +1.44%
10 Chattanooga, TN +1.26%

San Jose emerging from the recession would signal the beginning of the end for this long torturous recession.

So I hope all those dustbowl outposts enjoy their little ride, cause when California returns to its best self, there is nowhere stronger, there is nowhere more innovative, there is no where better.

Period.

found it!

Another quote I like from the article...

Quote:
"The study debunks what has been gospel in economic development circles for years that California's high costs and unwieldy regulations are driving businesses away. The issue reached a crescendo in the 2003 gubernatorial recall election. At the time, Schwarzenegger called the state's business climate the "worst in the nation" and pledged to make it better.

Puhleeze. This much whining is sooo UnCalifornian. Or at least it used to be. After reading the CaliForum here, you'd thinking whining was a requirement for state residency.

LOL...but I digress.

California PEOPLE are moving to other states for work!
The data shows that generally speaking, this really is NOT the case at all.

You have some high profile moves that make the news, but overall NOPE.

Jobs are created and lost in California, they hardly leave.

I have no clue as to the party affiliation of "the haters" (what's a hater... someone with an opinion that differs from yours?), but this atheistic "hater" hasn't been a member of that party since the Religious Right took over back around 1994, not to mention I didn't vote for either woman you mentioned.

Yes, and the fact that San Jose is in the Top 10 smashes your argument to bits. Apparently California does have a Metro Area that is among the biggest job gainers in the country.

That's a sign of incredible resilience and will probably continue in the future hopefully spreading out to the whole Bay Area and then out to the rest of the state.

Cleveland being on that list is WEIRD - but I've often said that the eastern part of the Rust Belt can come back due to water being plentiful and no RE bubble, and while I've doubted Cleveland's ability to bounce back like Pittsburgh has maybe it did hit a bottom and is recovering from said bottom. If Cleveland's gaining jobs, there's hope for almost anywhere...
