Not as bad as advertised

It's been repeated by many that California's most recent drought is putting tens of thousands of people out of work.

As pointed out before, the University of the Pacific has found that is a vastly overstated claim.

But don't expect The Associated Press — or the "self-interested" parties often interviewed for such articles — to stop citing the drought as a major motivator behind the Central Valley's high unemployment rates.

Honestly, this "drought" is just giving people an excuse to be lazy and not look for work.
