It’s common knowledge that small businesses create most new jobs. Now this bad news 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 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 in South Dakota: 3.6 percent.
In California: 8.5 percent.
That’s 2.4 times as much.
