Brown’s claim: California has added more than 1.4 million jobs since 2011.
The truth: The economy has been improving since January 2011, the month Brown took office. The state Employment Development Department reported total non-farm jobs in July at about 15.5 million, more than 1 million jobs more than the 14.3 million in January 2011.
