Jul 17, 2020 | Statement

Following the California Employment Development Department’s (EDD) release of the state’s employment data from June, the Acting Director of the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz), Chris Dombrowski issued the following joint statement with California’s Labor Secretary, Julie A. Su:

“The unemployment rate for June decreased slightly to 14.9 percent as California began modifying its Stay at Home order and 558,200 jobs were added to the economy. In the face of the COVID-19 global pandemic, it is crucial that we remember that every Californian has a role to play as we work to safely recover. Our individual actions impact our collective future which is why wearing a face covering, washing hands, staying home when possible, and adhering to state and local guidance will help slow the spread of COVID-19 and ensure we can once again regrow our economy.”
