Mendota California---Almost 40% Unemployed

Here's an interesting youtube clip about how tight water controls in California are causing tough times in California's bread basket. Farms outside of Fresno have gone fallow and "George" speculates that as farming and construction jobs continue to disappear in this part of California, you'll see a reverse migration that was seen during the Dust-Bowl migration of the Great Depression (i.e. people will be forced to leave California and move to the midwest, and south where there is more water and more jobs).
