Business friendly states? Not California.

Liberal California ranks near the bottom for job creation and business friendly conditions.
States governed by republicans rank at the top of the list. If California wants to put people back to work, Gov. Moonbeam and the Calif. socialist state assembly need to wake up.

You only forgot to mention that "business unfriendly" states like California still manage to send wheelbarrows full of money to support the people in many of those "business friendly states...
BTW, when are you relocating to one of those "business friendly states...?"

If all the trash that has come to CA from those red states would leave, we, the long -time residents would be a lot better off.
I'm all for state government offering anyone on government assistance fully paid moving expenses to any red state they want to go to.
#4 Jul 11, 2013
Yeah, I would like to offer a helping hand and hire a moving company to relocate some of those who don't like California, like LOCO and SOCIOPATH aka INFANTILE, send them all to Arizona or one of them T Publican Bible belt states....

Don't be ridiculous road toad.
why would anyone move to Calif. where the unemployment rate is one of the highest in the nation?
Oh ya, you Ca. liberal love to run the government giveaway programs.....
You get what you ask for. Ca. has made it too easy to be unemployed, and too hard to start/run a business.
WTF did you lefties expect?
#6 Jul 11, 2013
I already have divested myself financially (as much as possible)from the burden of Calif. government taxation/regulation.
However, I will continue to enjoy the good parts of Calif. as long as I feel like it.
Too bad you ole perverted socialist. I am ahead of the curve....again....and there is nothing you can do about it.

I personally know quite a few folks who started a successful business in Ca 5 or 6 years ago and they are doing great today... but unlike you, they all are people who know what they are doing and know what they are talking about...

Texas is a state righties love. They like to point to the Texas right-wing governor, ole cowboy Rick Perry, as a great example of right-wing de-regulation and low taxes.
Texas has had lots of new jobs over the last few years. But they're largely minimum wage jobs. According to the census, 17% of Texans live under the poverty line.
26 percent of Texans don't have health insurance - the highest rate in the nation, according to the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. The income gap between wealthy and middle-class families is the fifth-widest in the nation, according to the Legislative Study Group.
Perry has shaved millions from education. The SAT scores of Texas students rank 45th nationally, and the state is dead last in the number of residents over 25 who have a high school diploma.
The stimulus which righties hate, added 45,000 jobs to Texas. But the biggest reason for the Texas job increase has nothing to do with Perry or his politics. Texas happens to be an area with huge oil and gas production. It's geography, not politics.
In 2010 9.5% of hourly worker earned minimum pay in Texas ($7.25 an hour). In California just 2% of hourly workers earned just the minimum wage ($8.00 an hour).
So, go ahead and move to Texas. Good luck with your wages, health care, and childrens' educations. And I hope you don't get a job at a fertilizer plant that blows up and kills dozens.
And try to stay away from towns where fracking pollutes your water and air.

WASHINGTON, D.C.///July 18, 2012///“Accidents” and other non-routine events at Texas oil and gas facilities, refineries and petrochemical plants released almost 100,000 tons of pollution from 2009-2011, according to a new report from the Environmental Integrity Project (EIP).
Natural gas operations — which include well heads, pipelines, compressors, boosters, and storage systems — accounted for more than 85 percent of total sulfur dioxide and nearly 80 percent of the VOCs released during these episodes. Both pollutants are linked to asthma attacks and other respiratory ailments, and can form fine particles that contribute to premature death from heart disease.

One of the major reasons it’s hard to start a new business in Cauliforna is because people in this state were conned into passing Prop 13.
How so, here’s how.
If I owned one acre of commercial property and had a commercial building on it prior to passage of Prop 13 it’s taxed at a certain rate.
If I buy one acre of commercial property and build a commercial building on it comparable to the aforementioned property and building the taxes, mainly the property taxes are several times higher than the first property/building. Since businesses/companies don’t pay taxes those businesses/companies pass all taxes on to their customers.
If under the first scenario I could sell my product for say $1.00 each (all costs combined) and make a profit , butt under the second scenario all costs combined equaled $1.20, which business do you think is going to survive?
Prop 13 had good intent butt is a flawed piece of legislation that repubican shysters conned voters into passing.

Well spoken. Another reason for the higher employment rate is because it has more federal employees than most states.
#14 Jul 12, 2013
You missed the boat again road toad.
The largest single cost to most employers is payroll costs.
In California, it is very expensive to hire folks. Of course, a moron like you probably has no idea about paying salaries. You and the ole socialist pos are tried and true public employee union tax eaters.
And then, like the USPS workers, you hire non union illegals under the table to do your yard work so you can save money.
Business start up in California are at an all time low, and you know it. That is why the state unemployment rate is near the highest in the nation, and Californian have one of the highest tax burdens in the nation.
Try again dipsheiit.

Are you going to brag about California's public school system?
One of the worst performing in the nation ........with 20% drop out rates?
Wait.....let me get some popcorn before you respond. This ought to be funny.
#16 Jul 12, 2013
Of course I'll concede that as a whole, based on the national standardized testing, California students rank poorly.
You see, Loco, unlike yourself, who could not agree with the simple fact that the repubs wrote the bill that killed Glass-Steagall, but instead wanted to blame it all on Clinton, I'll concede points that are factual.
Of course the question should be, Why?
One reason is that Californians pay less per student than almost any other state. And why is that? Could it be that our state is trying to get its financial house in order, but the repubs will fight any bill that raises revenue?
The non-political fact is that California was hurt more by the Great
Recession than most other states. I do think that we need a friendlier business climate here-- but I certainly haven't researched all the specific arguments for and against every regulation-- and I'm sure you haven't done so either.
But I certainly don't want our state to go the way of Texas, where Perry has sold out to his corporate cronies in exchange for campaign funding and other 'favors'.
#17 Jul 13, 2013
Then you must concede that Clinton should have vetoed the repeal of Glass Steagall, but he didn't. He sold out....and so began the housing crisis. It just took 8 years to manifest into a full blown nightmare.
oh, and btw. Since you are in an agreeable mode, you must also know that Ca. public schools are "unfixable" as long as the teacher unions run the show. School vouchers(competition) is the way to go.

Are you really that stupid? Do you think the guy who owned the business prior to prop 13 is paying the same wages to his employees today as he did then? The guy who owned the business prior to Prop 13 and still owns it pays the same for labor, inventory, transportation, S.S. taxes, utility costs blah blah blah today as the new guy trying to start the new business. It’s the property taxes and real -estate loan that are different.
Please post one job that you know of that has paid the same wage all these years.
Gawd you’re stupid.
FYI: According to the hard right paper “Investors Business Daily” and middle of the road paper the Sacramento Bee, Caulifornia is on the verge of becoming the worlds 8th largest economy.
#19 Jul 15, 2013
And the silence from the moronic lemmings on the right who don't understand economics is deafening!
#20 Jul 15, 2013
Umm. Back in the 1980's California was the world's 5th largest economy.
That is before the liberal agenda started affecting business.
And now, by your own words California is the world's 9th?
Nice job you libs are doing.
