There was plenty of symbolism this month when Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation phasing out tax breaks in the state’s “enterprise zones” and replacing them with a package of incentives intended to benefit the state’s manufacturing and high-tech sectors and create middle-class jobs.
Brown was at Takeda California, part of San Diego County’s vibrant biotech industry. The company’s headquarters up the street from UC San Diego is in a census tract where median earnings top $75,000, according to the most recent census data.
“This state is going to thrive not by the lowest-paid jobs, but by those that require a lot of intellectual addition, content, skill, people working together,” Brown said July 11.
