    You're going by supplemental poverty rates when you're claiming California is dead last. As I said that's one method of calculating. Using more traditional methods California is currently 35th.
    Does your teacher let you use Wiki as a source?? I thought most schools had banned it. It's very unreliable and biased.

    You use Wiki, I'll go with the U.S. Census Bureau.

    LOL.

    Using the more accurate method used today all across the country by the United States Census Bureau, California has the highest poverty in the nation. Sorry, no spin is going to change that.

    I'm not writing a formal essay, I'm doing you the service of providing you with additional information related to your claim. The source provided a convenient method of comparing various measures of determining poverty level. You can debate the veracity of a wikipedia link (which included your figure), but that seems kinda lame.

    Just another example of why California is one of the most unfriendly states to business in the country. California continues to prevent companies from creating jobs and having employees paying taxes which is why California is losing businesses and has among the highest unemployment rates in the nation.
    Well first; there is no International Brotherhood of Workers as the report states. There is the IBEW. And organizing is not a union demand. So there;s something really wrong with this article.

    So then the company did decide to stay in California and create jobs there for Californians? Apparently the article doesn't tell you what you want to hear therefore there is something wrong with it??

    If a typo leaving out one word is such a big deal to you, here's another article:

    Los Angeles government and business leaders held a press conference Monday to condemn a local labor union on Monday, accusing the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers of killing a deal to bring a manufacturing plant to Palmdale.

    ...

    The union and Kinkisharyo disagreed about the way workers could unionize in the future when the plant was built. The union wanted the company to agree to a "card check" method, where employees would sign a card saying they wanted to join the union. The company wanted to hold an election, which it has a right to by law.

    Later, a law firm connected with the electrical workers' union filed legal challenges against Kinkisharyo under California’s Environmental Quality Act.

    “The developers that come into our city have to be accountable for what they do," said Tommy Faavae, an organizer with the electrical workers' union. "They can’t just you know, be a bully in our community and think they can build a project without going through the right process.”

    Great, glad to hear that the company is indeed staying and providing jobs for Californians, the state needs to stop the bleeding of jobs from that state. Good for them.

    I think the point being made was that the amateur level spin on the story blaming unions was in keeping with the amateur level fact checking.
