    Default Toyota Leaving CA for Texas.

    The giant sucking sound here in the Southland is Big Business on a Mass Exodus for cheaper greener pastures,Toyota is the latest to say adios to California,we lost half the Movie Production and courting by other states especially Texas is luring away companies at alarming rates.

    California named worst state for business in magazine survey - Los Angeles Times

    That and CA is one of if not the worst business climates,Texas on the other hand has one of the best,what we all know this is just geographically shifting good middle class jobs to other states where the middle class pay is much less,were no longer outsourcing to other countries,we are creating 3rd world states,just a slow painful circling of the drain.

    As for employees, the cost of living is 39 percent higher in Torrance than in Plano, and housing costs are 63 percent cheaper in Plano, according to bestplaces.net. An equivalent $50,000 salary in Torrance would be $30,608 in Plano.

    In NM, we have had no population growth, almost no job growth for several years now and one of the reasons given is that Texas and AZ are getting all the jobs. We are not a right-to-work state and we are dead center in between two states that are.

    Texas Gov is a frequent flier to our state beating the cheap tax,cheap labor,incentive drum for all to hear and it's working,I'm sure NM will follow suit at some point if they haven't started,they are courting Tesla for the big battery plant.

    hmm, maybe collecting more means collecting less, but socialist will never come to that realization.

    Yes, they are. We have lost thousands of jobs to other states like Texas and to Mexico. We are in dire straights in this state since the crash. I have been unable to get decent work and daughter graduated 2 years ago and is cleaning houses because she cannot even get a job at Dominoes Pizza or Walmart. She is in college but something pretty dismal happened with that today.

    You always get derailed fxstc don't you. It's Taxes and other Regulations.

    According to the Tax Foundation, California trails only New York and New Jersey as the worst for complex, non-neutral taxes with comparatively high rates.

    I didn't get derailed ... as you say.
    Your statement was "collecting more means collecting less".
    The state will collect more because of the business moving to it's state.
    It will collect less from the same number of employees because Toyota will pay the employees less.
    Lower pay = lower taxes.
