Campbell Poverty Q4
Retraining is best done by the employers who know exactly what skills their workplaces need. The employee who has been downsized and is no longer young is at great risk of falling below the poverty level. Large employers can be incentivized by government matching a percentage of salaries they offer to persons hired off the long-term unemployment rolls. What they should not do is move out of state responsive to the cost of regulation, taxation, and living costs in California; but our state government has a great deal to do about that.
