CA Poverty is Extensive

One Out of Every Five

On this week’s self-promotion media tour, Gavin Newsom seemed to gloss over the economic hardship that so many Californians are still dealing with as a result of his incompetence.

The Mercury News shined a light on an unemployment crisis that continues to devastate California, noting unemployment claims jumped to their highest level in three months, with 145,400 filings last week. California accounted for 19.6% of the week’s jobless claims nationwide, or nearly one in five of all claims in the United States. ONE IN FIVE.

But last week is, unfortunately, not an isolated incident. Under Gavin Newsom, California:

  • Has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country
  • Saw more than 19,000 California businesses permanently close their doors during the pandemic
  • Has the highest poverty level in the country
  • Has the highest number of homeless individuals in the country, while 6 out of the 10 U.S. cities with the highest number of homeless are located in California

Meanwhile, his unemployment department made up to $31 billion in fraudulent payments, including to death row inmates. But for the unemployed Californians who need them most, tens of millions of calls have gone unanswered, the website won’t work, and more than a million claims are piled up in a backlog.

Gavin Newsom is the worst governor in California history, and his mishandling of the unemployment crisis has devastated too many families. Californians are the ones paying the price for his incompetence.
