California has been anti-Trump from the very beginning of his announcement to run for president. Most Californians continue to remain staunchly opposed to just about everything he says and every policy he proposes. However, the state may be in for a rude awakening.
In spite of all their protesting and threats to secede from the United States, President Trump is still adamant about enforcing his travel ban. He is also looking to withhold federal funds if California continues to act as a sanctuary state for illegal immigrants.
But that isn’t the worst of it for this state! Before Trump even took office, over 1,680 companies have left the state of California (since 2008), because of the state’s inhospitable business climate. This is according to a report released last year by Spectrum Location Solutions. The latest company to make the move out of California is Nestle.
Investor’s Business Daily reported:
Nestle USA is moving its headquarters from Glendale, Calif., a pocket suburb just miles from downtown Los Angeles, to Rosslyn, Va., near Washington, D.C., and taking 1,200 California jobs with it. Why? As many companies have found, California is an awful place to do business.
The $26-billion-a-year food conglomerate is discreet, of course, about its reasons, citing a desire to be closer to its core customers and other bland corporate pabulum. But the fact is, Nestle and its corporate brethren in California that actually make things are overtaxed and overregulated, and elected officials treat them not as honored members of the community but as rapacious pirates…
…Still, you may wonder, why did Nestle really go?
Well, apart from having higher taxes, absurd housing costs and more regulations than nearly any other state, California’s wacky laws have turned the Golden State into a venue of choice for activist groups to file costly class action lawsuits — or to launch anti-corporate PR campaigns against big, wealthy targets like Nestle.
No wonder Nestle is moving to Virginia!
California treats businesses like unwanted intruders and illegal aliens like members of the family! What a cockeyed way of looking at things???
