    The fact is it is against California law to pay the Federal minimum wage and the only states surveyed by BLS are those that pay the Federal Minimum wage. Sorry, but you really don't have a clue. Please tell me how many Californians make California minimum wage?

Apparently then never learned that state law supports taking care of all their citizens by having the taxpayers fund all those liberal social programs. Interest that California leads the nation in poverty so I guess the real dumb people are the ones that remain.

    Again, another topic you know nothing about. What is corporate welfare in TX? How about allowing businesses to keep more of what they earn? Any idea what they do with that money or what the workers who hold those jobs do with theirs? Didn't think so which is what California is an economic disaster. Do they teach economics in California?

    I don't see many Californians packing up to move to the armpit of the country called Texas. I think thats just another of your pipedreams Conservative. But be careful what you ask for. It Californians truly do move there...they will speed up the shift of Texas to a blue state...and good luck winning national elections when that happens.

    Actually California has rebounded quite well now that we have a Democratic Governor.

    Of course you don't because you only pay attention to what the left tells you. Census date would help you understand what is going on. Only a true liberal believes those moving to TX are so stupid that they want TX to be more like California. Leading the nation in population growth and job creation along with having a balanced budget really bothers you apparently

    Oops: The Texas Miracle That Isnít by Phillip Longman | The Washington Monthly



    ...only 28 percent of the jobs created in or relocated to Texas since 2001 pay in the lowest quarter of the nationís wage distribution. By comparison, jobs paying in the top half account for about 45 percent of the new jobs in Texas.

    This means that Texas has been creating or attracting middle- and high-wage jobs at a far faster pace than the rest of the country taken as whole. For example, between 2001 and 2012, the number of Texas jobs in the upper-middle quarter of the nationís wage distribution increased by 25.6 percent. This compares with a 4.1 percent decline in the number of such jobs outside of Texas. Though coming off a comparatively small base, Texas has also outperformed the rest of the country in its growth of high-paying jobs.

    Yep, that's certainly an awful record.....
