Progressivism Unrestrained: 9 of the top 10 jobless metro areas are in California.

Posted by iusbvision on February 17, 2011

As Governor Rick Perry of Texas has told us, 151 companies left California and moved to Texas in last year alone.

The recent census data shows us that people are voting with their feet. They are leaving progressive states and moving to “right to work” states.

Via Verum Serum:

Nine of the top 10 metro jobless rates in the nation are California, and seven are in California’s Central Valley:

  • El Centro, CA – 29.3% (east of San Diego near border with Mexico)
  • Yuma, AZ – 26.7%
  • Yuba City, CA – 17.8%
  • Merced, CA – 16.3%
  • Stockton, CA – 16.3%
  • Modesto, CA – 16.2%
  • Visalia-Porterville, CA – 15.9%
  • Fresno, CA – 15.7%
  • Palm Coast, FL – 15.5%
  • Hanford – Corcoran, CA – 15.0%
