Sacramento, CA – Following the California Employment Development Department’s (EDD) release of the state’s employment data from November, the Governor’s Chief Economic and Business Advisor and Director of the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development, Lenny Mendonca issued the following statement:

“One hundred seventeen months now of job expansion and the continuation of a historic low unemployment rate shows that the high-road of California capitalism continues to be the path to success. As we look ahead to 2020, we resolve to ensure our economy is built on inclusive, sustainable growth and that the jobs in this state are quality jobs that support economic mobility.
