Digital News Report – Sacramento — Senate Republican Leader Bob Dutton (R-Rancho Cucamonga) issued the following statement in response to the Next 10 report on green jobs growth which was issued late Tuesday:
I’ve said it before: job creation efforts must be color blind. This latest report provides clear proof that California can’t rely on just one sector of the economy to create jobs.
It’s great news that the green job sector added five thousand new jobs last year according to the report, but that’s simply not enough. At the rate of five thousand new jobs per year, it will take more than 400 years to create enough green jobs for the more than two million unemployed Californians.
I don’t care if they are pink, purple, blue or green, we need to help the small business community create a lot more jobs. That’s the only way to get California out of this fiscal crisis.
