    Tampa and St Petersburg are in full recession here, businesses are closing up all over and I cant even get a job myself. We currently have the highest unemployment rate in the state of Florida

    Small rise from May brings the gauge to a nearly five-year high. The Los Angeles area has suffered substantial losses since a year earlier.

    By Marc Lifsher, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer / July 19, 2008

    SACRAMENTO -- California's jobless rate crept ahead Friday as experts saw weakness spreading into new areas of the economy.

    For months, job losses were concentrated in the state's housing industry. But with June's increase of one-tenth of a percentage point to 6.9%, it was evident that a broader downturn is underway.

    In all, the state lost 12,800 jobs in June compared with May. The number of government workers fell 6%, while professional and business positions declined 5.2%, manufacturing 4.4% and the information sector, which includes television and film production, 2.6%. Retail trade dropped 2.5%, according to an analysis of state figures by Beacon Economics, a Los Angeles consulting firm.

    Ordinance would require shelters for day laborers

    Article Last Updated: 08/05/2008 11:50:59 PM PDT

    LOS ANGELES -- Companies that open large home-improvement stores in Los Angeles would have to set aside space for day laborers under an ordinance unanimously approved today by a City Council committee.
    The proposed ordinance was passed by the Planning and Land Use Management Committee, but must still be approved by the full council.

    If passed, the ordinance would require new home improvement stores that are 100,000 square feet or larger, or any building or structure where 250,000 square feet or more of warehouse floor area is added, to set aside space for day laborers seeking employment from customers.

    The shelters would have to be easily accessible and equipped with drinking water, bathrooms, tables with seating and trash facilities.

    Home-improvement stores would also be required to develop a security plan in consultation with the Los Angeles Police Department.

    What you’re failing to realise is that as California goes - job wise - so goes the nation. We do have about 10% of the country’s population, you know?

    With an increase in hispanic immigration and dropouts among minorities in inner city schools, is it really a surprise that the number of people who ask for money from the government is increasing?

    With high taxes and more on the way, Californians will start saying "Hasta La Vista Baby" and moving to another state.

    I sure as @#$% hope they don't come to Ohio.

    But they won't. That is what Nevada and Arizona are for. They take all the ex-Californians.

    California is about 20 years from being the state of the illegals, the homos, and the hollywood do-gooders and nobody else. Oh, wait.....
    **** Obama and **** you too.

    * The total gross state product in 2005 for Louisiana was US168 billion, placing it 24th in the nation. Its per capita personal income is US$30,952, ranking 41st in the United States.

    Only a liberal would use that kind of economics to justify anything.

    And what is the cost of living in Louisiana relative to california?

    Here is a newsflash, I live in Ohio. We have very low per capita income and household income. But we also have insanely low cost of living. Gas here is 20 cents a gallon less than the national average. Food costs less too. Housing costs? Ha! Dirt cheap. Therefore if I earn the same as a colleague in San Francisco (very easy for those of us in the high-tech industry), I can live like royalty while he lives in a 1 bedroom apartment next to 20 illegals and a crackhead that uses his sidewalk to go twosies.
    **** Obama and **** you too.
