    ASSEMBLY REPUBLICAN CAUCUS

    MARTIN GARRICK, LEADER

    In Last Five Years Private Sector Loses 1.3 Million Jobs as State Government Adds 38,000


    SACRAMENTO – Assembly Republican Leader Martin Garrick, of Carlsbad, today released a compilation of job statistics titled Real Facts: California Private Sector Job Loss vs. State Employee Job Cost. These statistics reveal that the private sector is losing jobs as state government is growing, even though it takes 25 private sector jobs to fund one state government job.




    “Legislative Democrats claim their opposition to any serious spending reductions is about saving jobs for Californians, but it’s truly about protecting state employee jobs. Bigger government is funded through higher taxes and costs far more private sector jobs than it creates,” said Assemblyman Garrick. “It takes 25 private sector jobs to support one government job. Yet, over the last five years California has lost 1.3 million private sector jobs while state government has grown by more than 38,000 positions. It’s no mystery that multibillion-dollar budget deficits persist when Democrats refuse to significantly reduce the size of government, while the private sector jobs that fund state government flee California.”
