Statement of Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown on California’s Recent Drop in Unemployment Rate

SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown (D-San Bernardino) issued the following statement today in response to a report that shows California’s unemployment rate at a downward spiral.

“According to data released by the California Employment Development Department, California’s unemployment rate decreased to 9.4 percent in March, and nonfarm payroll jobs increased by 25,500 during the month for a total gain of 746,800 jobs since the recovery began in February 2010; however, in the 47th Assembly District, we must escalate our efforts to increase employment opportunities in San Bernardino County because the unemployment rate is 10.5 percent.

It is extremely important that we create an economic environment that supports the growth of businesses and manufacturing in our county. As the newly appointed chair of the Assembly Select Committee on Small Business Financing and Development Opportunities creating supportive environments for businesses will be the primary objective of the committee and I will work with my colleagues in the legislature to promote a strong agenda for economic development.”

 

Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown represents the 47th Assembly District, which includes Colton, Fontana, Grand Terrace, Rialto, San Bernardino, and the unincorporated communities of Bloomington and Muscoy.

    In order to help look in the right place, consider where jobs picked up in March (plz remember ONLY 1 month of data)

    ‘Further east, the Inland Empire’s strongest employment gains for March were in government, which added 1,500 jobs. Educational and health services added 1,100 positions and leisure and hospitality boosted its staffing with 1,000 new jobs.

    The biggest decline was professional and business services, which shed 700 jobs.’

      So right Shawn, Also we must always remember that the stats do not account for the people in the job market that have given up looking for work or are under employed. If the state was serious about looking at un-employment they would add in these figures and give the people a real eye opening experince
