Regarding those supporting Initiative 1183: Not one ad have I seen claims it would be creating jobs.
If fact, more than 1,000 state workers will lose their jobs – not to mention all the jobs lost by distributors, contract store employees and other supporting services. Thousands of families will be negatively impacted by the passing of I-1183.
Since retail outlets that would gain from I-1183 already have their own distribution and employees in place, it is doubtful these retailers will be hiring anyone to counter the loss of these jobs.
Vote no on I-1183 and keep the currently employed working and off the unemployed list.
