      One in five Californians live in poverty, according to a new U.S. Census Bureau report.

The national average over that period of time was 14.7 percent.

      What business exodus? California tops in U.S. for company creation

      Toyota’s leaving. Nestle USA, too. Also Chevron and Occidental Petroleum. To name a few more. Even the headquarters of Jamba Juice and Carl’s Jr.

      5 trends in Orange County job scene: Fewer teachers, more construction workers

      Orange County job numbers in July showed some surprising trends, with more people counted as out of work and fewer jobs for them to fill.

      Joblessness rose to 4.2 percent in July from 3.8 the month before. But that was for a good reason: new job-seekers turned out by the thousands, either because they just graduated from high school or college, or because they were lured by an improved economy.

      Orange County needs to invest in senior care

      Orange County seniors need our support now more than ever. With the impending cuts in health care on the national level, we will see an increase in the number of seniors requiring care. For Orange County, that means we need to see more from our Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, or PACE. It is a program that is not currently reaching enough of our senior population, but could provide vital benefits for all participants.

      California’s coming youth deficit

      Images of California, particularly the southern coast, are embedded with those associated with youthfulness — surfers, actors, models, glamorous entrepreneurs. Yet, in reality, the state — and the region — are falling well behind in the growth of their youthful population, which carries significant implications for our future economic trajectory and the nature of our society.

      Santa Ana has become the first city in Orange County to adopt a resolution supporting worker cooperatives – businesses owned and operated solely by their workers, who also share profits.

      Full-contact jousting brings hard hits to the OC Fair

      Kyran Fairchild, clad head to toe in armor, is sitting on his horse when an assistant hands him an 11-foot piece of solid Douglas fir.
      He directs his horse to turn and, seconds later, charges full steam ahead at his opponent.
      As his horse gallops toward the center of the run, Fairchild gazes through the tiny slit in his helmet and steadies the lance in a holster on his right side. He aims it at the heart of his opponent, Matt Hiltman, who is protected by a bolted-on shield.

      California looks to expand overtime pay

      Two weeks after the November presidential election, a Texas judge put a hold on a sweeping reform of federal overtime standards that would have raised the wages of 4.2 million Americans.
      President Barack Obama’s administration appealed the ruling. But after Donald Trump took office in January, the appeal was delayed.
      Now California and a handful of other states are moving to enact the Obama proposal. Their reasoning: workers have seen their pay erode over decades as the cap on overtime wages has failed to keep up with inflation.

      Health care for all? More like how to destroy California

      The staggering price tag for the Democrats’ plan to provide “health care for all” would cost California $400 billion a year to create a state-funded universal health care system — more than double the $180 billion annual state budget.

      California residents will be required to pay significantly increased taxes — as much as 50 percent or more — to the state to cover health care costs, rather than individuals being able to make their own decisions to buy from private insurers who have to compete for their business.
