Which is best?
IBM decided to move to Mexico.

The management of a company is responsible to maximize profits for the shareholders. If it means moving jobs to another location, that is what needs to be done.

Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that the labor market in the United States is in as much danger (or more so) than the day Obama took office.

Minnesota just needs to become more competitive....high taxes and tons of laws aren't going to entice anyone

Interesting insights into the situation in Rochester. However, the source being the STrib means the information is tainted to start with.

I am betting on the Dems using this cut by IBM as a selling point on why they need to spend $500 million tax dollars to build fancy restaurants in Rochester. Gotta build up that infrastructure.

A better solution would be for the MN Legislature to abolish hundreds of laws and regulations that make MN an unfriendly business climate. They could then begin attracting buisinesses to the state rather than waving good-bye to them as everyone leaves.

Even in the region Minnesota is being outpaced by Wisconsin, I remember a story about tech start ups that started in the Minnesota MSP area and then relocated to places like Hudson, WI because of taxation and what not....Minnesota can't survive on leftovers from 20+ years forever.

The largest employer in the State is government.

That is a very scary thought when you look at the spending habits of the DFL Legislature and Gov GoogleyEyes.

We can not survive on the current path we are taking.

To be honest Wisconsin isn't exactly free but the mere fact that people are going to these places like Hudson, WI needs to be a cause of Concern... MSP used to be one of the fastest growing metros in the Country but not anymore.

Business have left the leftist urban cores and now are leaving the leftist states... liberals need to wake up soon or they'll doom us all to becoming a second rate country like china

Yes. Very good DSM, "a cause of Concern." Now pull your gay head out of your arse.

So, you have no point, proof, or posting reasoning ?? Good "work" and totally typical, for you. Same guy who blamed Bush before, but you're a low intelligence poster, who cannot EVER be trusted... Heck, AT Sea-Tac now means 10 minutes away, right ???

Now with the DFL in control they have just added a brand new EXPENSIVE State Department of early health and education.

Pile on more revenue demanding state departments.
