Union Made

The fiscal bomb devastating California carries the union label.

In the early days of Left Coast liberal-progressive-socialism, unions assassinated a state governor and wantonly destroyed private property, capping it off with the 1910 bombing of the Los Angeles Times building that killed 21 workers and injured 100 more.  See IWW - Organized Crime in the Labor Market.

Now the unions have set their sights higher: destroying the entire state.

Jobs Are Created By Real Productive Business Investment

Governments do not create jobs.  Whatever they spend has to be taken from someone, whose wherewithal to hire new workers is thereby curtailed.

Increasing taxes, imposing strangling new regulations, flooding the economy with phony fiat money, and working actively to destroy selected industries create uncertainty and fear in business decision makers.  After four years of this, businesses understandably are very cautious about investing in new production facilities or expanding existing ones.  Only when those elements of uncertainty have been removed will business revive and create new jobs.
