It’s common knowledge that small businesses create most new jobs. Now this bad news[1] for California:

California has landed on another naughty list, ranking as the state with the least friendly policy environment for small businesses, according to report from an advocacy organization.

“The¬†Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council[2]¬†annually ranks the 50 states based on policy measures and costs impacting small businesses. For the second year in a row, California ranked No. 50.

“South Dakota topped the list.”

Current unemployment rate [3]in South Dakota: 3.6 percent.

In California: 8.5 percent.

That’s 2.4 times as much.
