In a statement responding to an investigation by this newspaper, Willie Green clarified that the 1 billion job figure does not refer to the number of workers...
Yeah, that really clarified it..........

Well, there's a lot moving to Texas.
Does that mean the next generation will be under the new high speed train? As in thrown? Like the proverbial bus?
Clarified? No, LIED.

"job-years"? I recall no mention of "job-years" when the original "one million jobs" lie was lied, and the cover up lie is a true test of the gullibility of California inhabitants (some of whom are citizens).
Yup. It won’t actually create large numbers of new jobs. Even if it lasts decades, when the work is done, the on-going economic benefit will be a negligible one.
“High Speed Rail”, now we know what the final nail in Kalifornia’s coffin looks like!
The cost of this boondoggle will finish them off.
Would not be such an issue, but the rest of us will be tapped to bail them out.
Kalifornia, the next “Too big to fail”.
California’s high-speed rail + Earthquake =Death
Ca has never been short of scams.
