Making Hiring Harder

(September 29, 2015) “The California Legislature would be more credible about its concern for job growth if it didn’t make it so hard for employers to hire workers. Job growth starts with an employer making an offer to an applicant. Thankfully, aggregate demand and certain competitive advantages in parts of California have strengthened our job base. But in many parts of the state, in many industries, and on the margin, additional burdens on employers make it just that much harder to justify an additional hire.” (Loren Kaye in Fox and Hounds, 09/29/15)
