Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development Acting Director Releases Joint Statement with California Labor Secretary on October Employment Numbers

Nov 20, 2020 | Press Release

Following the California Employment Development Department’s (EDD) release of the state’s employment data from October, 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:

“California’s ongoing economic recovery depends upon each and every one of us doing our part. October was a strong month for California with the unemployment rate falling to 9.3 percent from 11.1 percent with the state adding 145,500 nonfarm jobs. But with the rise in COVID-19 cases, we are reminded how our economy is tied to the ongoing public health crisis. With the state under a limited stay-at-home order and as we approach the holiday season, how we choose to navigate public and workplace interactions will have a direct impact on our loved ones, our friends, our communities, and our economy. Together we can support and protect our businesses, customers, and workers when we do our part.”
