    Those companies would just move...as a matter of fact, a lot of them are currently looking to build East Coast HQ locations.

    Amazon, for example, has narrowed down their final spots to Montgomery County (MD), Loudon County (Virginia), Pittsburgh, or Atlanta.

    This

    California is exporting people and jobs to other states every day and some of their political representatives are encouraging it.

    If California were a stock, it would be a "shithole" stock.

    I mean, I have a few pals that work for Apple and Google in the San Francisco Bay Area. First, they don't get paid as much as a lot of people thing they do, but the opportunity to work at Google or Apple isn't something that comes along every day.

    Second, living in the SF Bay Area is stupid expensive pretty much everywhere you go. Even out by the avocado farms in the Half Moon Bay area...houses that are 40-50 years old and in so-so condition are still 600-700K.

    There are a lot of qualified people to work at those organizations across this country, but there aren't a lot of people that want to live in California and pay California prices or taxes.

    I interviewed for a director position with Anheiser-Busch last summer. Would have been a nice pay bump and a positional bump for me. Plus, as a home brewer/beer head, it would have been cool to work for AB. I was pretty geared up to make the move until they told me that the job was in San Francisco and that I would have to relocate there. I politely said no thank you.

    Sounds like you made the right choice.

    The CA government just spent millions of dollars cleaning up homeless people's feces and hypodermic needles within the city limits of SF because the problem was so severe.

    That's a 3rd world problem, and they expect you to pay more to live there? Can you imagine human excrement on sidewalks as you walk to an Orioles/Ravens game? Crazy.
