CA Bill Would Help Job-Seekers Move Into Self-Employment

Modesto Bee (California) (06/04/12) Darrell Smith

In California, Rep. Lois Capps (D-Santa Barbara) has proposed the Entrepreneurial Training Improvement Act of 2012 to enable would-be entrepreneurs to obtain training from local Workforce Investment Boards. Capps says U.S. Department of Labor guidelines for Workforce Investment Boards focus on traditional job creation and placement, but her bill aims to help job seekers create their own businesses. The Kauffman Foundation’s Index of Entrepreneurial Activity reveals that 543,000 businesses were created per month last year on a national basis; California ranked first among states, with 440 adults per 100,000 establishing businesses each month in 2011.
