Toyota Motors has announced they are moving their complete operation (and thousands of jobs) from Torrence, CA to Texas. After 57 years, there’s no reason to stay in non-business-friendly California.
This isn’t new. Republic Services and Waste Management, the two largest garbage companies at the moment, have closed up their offices in California in the past couple of years, and pulled out of Left-leaning states, and gaining a larger presence in their home states. RS is headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona, and WM is headquartered in Houston…
Mayor, perhaps you should rethink your definition of “business friendly”. Perhaps you should use this as a (lessons learned) moment and educate yourself on how to attract and keep businesses in your city. However, given the fact that you failed to understand the most basic economic practices for maintaining good business relations, or you just didn’t care, I foresee nothing but continued disaster for your citizens. But please, keep your 4000 citizens, they will not be welcome here.
Hey California, socialism doesn’t work, do you understand that….????????
Come to Texas, we Love Liberty, Rule of Law, Fast Cars, Fat Cattle and anything to do with Drilling for Fossil Fuels and Coal.
We are trying to rid our State of any Damn Yankees or their Not See Muslim Brothers.
Whoa there Willyrho, “Damn Yankees?”or their “Not See muslum Brothers?”, Where did you come up with that assumption? I am a Yankee and I am definitely not a brother to any muslum nor am I a democrat. Too bad about California as they were bigger than most countries as far as production goes at one time. People went there from all over the USA to better themselves and most of them did until the will nots started voting themselves benefits. Careful that you don’t allow the same type of thinking to creep into your politics Willyho. Best of luck.
Yes spudmans2 but I have to say that people like you are very few and very far between, up north. Which is why Obama and most northerner’s love messing with the southerners. We’ve been labeled uneducated, racist, bigots, and more. So you kind of have to stop and look around you and realize that it’s the truth.
WILLYRHO; don’t know what your talking about there skippy. This damm Yankee thinks you might wanna check where all those fat cattle go to? And if you think Yankees don’t know coal, you need to get out more. You don’t think Texas has a Muslim problem, you better spend some time in Houston.
I lived in Texas, and California, and during that time, many companies were moving to Texas, which is understandable. California not only has high taxes, but their regulations are too much. Recycle and disposable fees on everything you can think of. They are a government on drugs, they can’t get enough of their citizens taxes, and they are addicted to regulations. Very sick state, it needs serious over hauling.
California, LMAO. One of the most hateful State Gov’t there is. They don’t like anyone or any business/company/corporation that thinks for themselves and/or makes a good profit. I’d be running for the border and it wouldn’t be to the North. Oregon’s close to being as bad.
CA has only itself to blame for losing businesses and revenue. THEY JUST DON’T GET IT!
They should of went to Florida
The ones from upstate and upper east coast are moving southeast and south. Then they raise taxes to cover those that have left.
