I used to do business at that site.  That is a big loss, especially highly visible.  When will CA learn their lesson?

I can see the highly paid management moving but not everyone.  How much would you have to be paid to move to Texas?  I could tolerate it for about a mil a year...and a top end Lexus and SUV.  Call me, maybe. :P

Toyota is moving to Texas.

You would have to at least quad me up.

This way I can keep the family in SoCal and I'll just fly back and forth every weekend.

When TIC moves to TX then you know it's time to abandon ship.

Why not Johns Creek? :)

Texas has no corporate income tax and no individual income tax.

Georgia has both. That is why no Johns Creek.  :D

Texas unemployment rate is 6.2%, Orange County is 6.2%. It's obviously not good news, but there are still plenty of companies creates jobs in California despite the high costs of living here (mostly real estate)

Companies do this all the time...they move to a state where they think has greener pastures only to find that there is a lack of high skill workers/employees.  While people complain about the cost of living in California, most high skilled and high earning workers still want to live here.

I think this is something most decision makers do all the time if it doesn't relocate them.

On top of the recruiting pool there, they don't factor in that many won't want to move and that those that do, may not be happy about it.

Some people I know moved to TX because homes were cheaper and they had family there... they moved back to SoCal a few years later because they couldn't stand the heat.  And while real estate and lack of income tax helps, there are other taxes/bills that eat up that difference (I think TX is 1.8% tax, one of the highest).

There are always tons of variables to consider when you choose where to live... Irvine, Texas or Johns Creek all have pros/cons.
