What’s Driving California’s Mass Tech Exodus?

  • Wealthy areas refuse to permit denser residential areas. That restriction of additional residences increases home prices. That is why people leave. Sell your house for a million dollars, buy a comparable home for half that in Texas, put the $500,000 in the bank. If you are retired that’s a logical thing to do.

    William StrykerWilliam Strykerپیش 11 ساعت
    • California is no more socialist than any other state, no matter what the anti-California propaganda you listen to might say. We tax people, and then spend the money to pay for things that the people as a whole want- Exactly the way everyone else does it. As for guns, most Californians I know, no matter our political party, are gun owners. Despite what some love to believe, California still has the second amendment, just like every other state. True, there are some pretty stupid rules about guns, but... you can still buy and use guns. Hell, I live across a lake from a ranch where they've got their own private firing range. As for freedom of speech- guess what- we've got it, and even more of it than some other states. We've also got a healthy respect for the separation of church and state, just like the nation's founders wanted. Seems that any state that wanted to be free, would embrace That... Fact is, if I ever moved to another state, it'd probably be to the one I was born in- Texas, where a huge number of native-born democrats are trying to get rid of the corrupt Republican politicians...

Cut taxes, cut busines restrticting regulations - more small and medium size businesses will emerge and more jobs they will create. More businesses and more comptetion - lower prices. Only big companies and monopolies can do well or OK with high taxes, but as monopolies they will keep prices high. This is called market economy and it's strange that Californians don't understand this any more.

Some of them leave, because they don't like the stronger gun laws, so they move to Texas where they can have all the guns they want. The DEMS used to carry CA by 20 points, now it is 30 points, and after more people move to Texas it will be 40 points! Those Californians who move to Texas, most of them vote GOP. There is no perfect state, some things I like better about CA, somethings I like better about Texas. Overall I like more things about California, than I do Texas.

    • So, a party that wants to combat the climate crisis that, in the last 50 years has resulted in the world's average high temperature going up by over 12 degrees... is Bad? A party that believes that Every Citizen should have easy access to voting is... bad? A party that believes that every American having access to affordable (or free) healthcare is... bad? Actually, I'd say that anyone who is Against all that stuff is the bad party. We do, in fact, have a party in this country that consistently votes to restrict action in all of those areas; that is the same party that believes it's okay for demagogues to lie about election fraud, and that it's perfectly okay to support a man who staged an insurrection. Oddly enough, the party in question is the Republican Party. And in California, members of that party Never want to try and come up with solutions for Anything; instead, they do what Republicans do- try to ruin the state, like others of their party try to ruin the nation.

California's motto should be "PAY MORE GET LESS". Fortunately, I have a great job here, which is what keeps me here, now. However, my retirement is likely elsewhere.

That answer is nothing. The real fix is less tax on the people. Less regulations = less government . Both to build homes that will reduce housing cost and less homeless. Plus entice people to want to live here. So for Democrats increasingly more all the time government regulations , taxes, cost of homes and homelessness. All to make tax payers want out.

  • There's one unaddressed conundrum here: How can a state that is described to experience a business and population exodus for a decade still have a housing shortage of 3-4 million (!) units?

    abcdefghijklmno29753abcdefghijklmno29753پیش روز
    • The simple fact is, while a lot of businesses and people are leaving the state, almost as many are moving To California. With certain exceptions, the majority of businesses that seem to be leaving, are looking to move to places where it's not so much the taxation they want to avoid, but the environmental and safety regulations they want to escape from. Texas is Very business friendly, to the point that their environmental and safety regulations are less of a hindrance, and more of a suggestion. In the meantime, California actually provides pretty good incentives for green businesses to relocate to the state. Admittedly, other states also provide similar incentives, but few of them are as attractive in terms of real commitment to fighting the effects of the climate crisis. End result, we still have a serious lack of housing. Well, there's also a huge problem with speculation; wealthy people and businesses love to buy up existing properties, raise the rents (without actually bothering to fix up the properties), and that tends to attract many more well off people; of course, that tends to drive away lower income people (frequently the former residents of those properties), who, if they can't find lower cost housing, well, they either become part of the working homeless population (not a group that gets a lot of press, because they typically live in RV's and whatnot, instead of makeshift tents), or they just leave the state, like so many others.

  • I don’t own my own business and I had to pay 18,000 in one year. Why do business owners think they are except in paying their share of taxes. Owning a business wasn’t supposed to be about money. It was supposed to be about passion, making jobs and being your own boss. Now it’s just dictators and slaves.

    • @Wise One Um, sad to tell you, but the new President is Joe Biden. And he will be President, in all likelihood, for two terms. After Him, well, there's a very fine V-P with far more qualifications than anyone you named, who could well manage a term or two of her own. I don't think most of the nation wants to go back to the cronyism and incompetence of the Republican Party any time soon.

    • @Steven Ratti We have a very fine Governor in Texas and the Legislator is wonderful (Republican). My cousin is one of them. Cruz will be reelected as we love him too. Our new President of the USA will be the non-Florida governor as we love him in Texas too. Too bad our Texas governor can't be VP but having them on the same ticket makes no sense. Anyway we want to keep him in Texas. Perhaps Florida and Texas will yet save this nation.

    • @Steven Ratti Bro.. Mad Maxine Waters doesn't have an ounce of honesty in her. The woman is corrupt to the core and anyone who can't see that must be smoking that Cali crack pipe.

    • And moving to Texas, where All of the politicians (such as the Governor, the AG, the Senators, and so on) are corrupt. Compared to Cancun Cruz, Maxine is totally honest.
