New Jobs, Not a New Jobs Tax

What do you need when you don’t have a job?  You need a job.  That seems pretty obvious.  And with 2 million Californians still out of work, what California needs is a lot of jobs.

Instead, what we now have on the ballot in November is the Jobs Tax Initiative.  A proposal that would cost us jobs, a lot of jobs.  A proposal that would punish with higher taxes, businesses that want to hire Californians and create new jobs.  That would push existing jobs out of the state.   That heaps new burdens on already struggling small businesses.  That goes right after high tech and bio tech, the very industries that we are expecting to create the next wave of good jobs.

What seems pretty obvious about the Jobs Tax initiative – is what a bad idea it is.
