Toyota to California: #039;Don#039;t with Texas#039;

Score a remarkable win for Texas in the business game: Toyota has announced it is moving its California-based national to Texas.


This is a considerable Toyota has had its U.S. headquarters and operations based in Torrance, (a suburb of LA) for almost 60 years enough to witness California’s into a neo-socialist hell of income taxes, high taxes, high sales high regulations, and high prices, all combined with bad government services. Toyota be moving its division to a location in a northern suburb of Dallas.

The will create a campus that will have a workforce of 4,000, with from Toyota’s marketing, and manufacturing operations along its financial division now scattered the country.

Texas Gov. Perry gave a Rebel at the news, crowing, “Toyota that Texas’ employer-friendly of low taxes, fair courts, regulations and world-class workforce can businesses of any size succeed and By “fair courts,” of course, was alluding to the fact that has a loser-pay civil court He didn’t mention that is also a right-to-work state.

Nor did mention the taxpayer sugar he to the company to lure it to make the The Texas enterprise fund is the company $40 million. Considering Texas will gain jobs, this works out to be a $10,000-per-job incentive. But then, lavishes subsidies on its favorite too most notoriously, the entertainment

California, in turn, will upwards of 3,000 high-paying The company will allow its employees who face different in the reorganized marketing organization to for opportunities in the new marketing division, or in divisions such as Toyota Services. Any employee who doesn’t to move to Texas or can’t a new position there will be a severance package.

Losing big companies is nothing new for naturally, nor is losing Japanese company headquarters. Nissan moved its North American from California to Tennessee a few back, and Honda though it that it is contemplating relocation has some of its high-level management to Moreover, Texas has already about 1,700 Chevron switched to Houston, and 3,600 jobs switched to Austin the of the main campus of the University of and Texas’s answer to Silicon (In fact, Texas surpassed as the top exporter of high-tech products two ago).

The reasons for Toyota’s are open for speculation. The CEO of Toyota’s American operations, Jim Lentz, that the move had nothing to do California’s notoriously bad business recently ranked 48 th (that is, in the nation, for sociology majors) by the Tax No, the places Toyota looked at to Atlanta, Charlotte, Denver, and were all closer to Toyota’s manufacturing plants, but not in any of the states in Toyota had divisional headquarters Michigan, Kentucky, and California).

doesn’t pass the laugh Lentz himself cited business-friendly climate, and there is the that Texas has no personal tax (which in California goes as a 13%).

And the same WSJ piece that “people familiar the search for the new U.S. headquarters” is, actual Toyota execs no pressure to be politically correct some obvious criteria. The new had to be near a major airport, be near Detroit (the child for progressive bad governance), affordable housing, and have public schools.

Let’s that the average mid-level exec earns $150,000 In California, he or she immediately pays grand in state income In Plano, the employee pays income tax. That is grand more to spend on a good car, sending the to private school whatever.

And that California, being by the jackboots in the teachers’ unions, that employee nearly the public schools in the nation, Texas has better than schools.

Of crucial importance is housing, at to employees with families (as to the pets-only swinging singles who to Frisco). That mid-level can afford a home of maybe to $600,000, if he or she cuts down on all expenses. Do a Trulia search for homes in Torrance of 2,500 feet or more in that range, and you get one house an unattractive built over 60 years Do a Trulia search using the criteria in Plano, and you get over 400 most very recent and of construction. California makes homes ever more Texas doesn’t. But then, we all the billionaire environmentalist neo-pagans, and doesn’t.

The reaction of the California was interesting. Certainly, poor Scotto, Mayor of Torrance, was He has the unenviable task of trying to some business to occupy the campus in which Toyota now its headquarters. He said about the of the company’s move, “It was a We didn’t realize the magnitude of it was.” The mayor is now putting out points under the novel “TORRANCE IS A BUSINESS-FRIENDLY CITY.”

Mayor, even if that so, your burg is still in a viciously business-hostile state.

On the hand, Gov. Jerry yes, the now geriatric Gov. of the 1970s and ’80s simply the news, hubristically averring “[w]e’ve got a few problems, we have of little burdens and regulations and but smart people figure out how to it.”

So there’s our explanation for move: the Toyota people are stupid!

But if anyone is here, it is Governor Moonbeam and the He is the one who gave the public employees the to unionize, knowing that dues would flow to his In the three decades since, pay and benefits for public-sector workers ballooned, and the state faces an pension liability of upwards of billion.

Texas Gov.

Nor did Perry the taxpayer sugar he provided to the to lure it to make the move. The enterprise fund is giving the $40 million.

Losing big is nothing new for California, naturally, nor is Japanese auto company Nissan Motors moved its American headquarters from to Tennessee a few years back, and though it denies that it is relocation has moved some of its management to Ohio. Moreover, has already gotten about Chevron jobs switched to and 3,600 Apple jobs to Austin the home of the main of the University of Texas, and Texas’s to Silicon Valley. (In fact, surpassed California as the top exporter of products two years ago).

The for Toyota’s move are open for The CEO of Toyota’s North American Jim Lentz, claimed that the had nothing to do with California’s bad business climate recently 48 th (that is, third-worst in the nation, for majors) by the Tax Foundation. No, the places looked at to relocate Atlanta, Denver, and Plano were all to Toyota’s large manufacturing but not in any of the states in which Toyota had headquarters (namely, Michigan, and California).

This doesn’t the laugh test. Lentz cited Texas’s business-friendly and there is the fact that has no personal income tax (which in goes as high a 13%).

And the same WSJ piece reports “people familiar with the for the new U.S. headquarters” that is, Toyota execs under no to be politically correct mentioned obvious criteria. The new site had to be a major airport, be nowhere Detroit (the poster for progressive bad governance), have housing, and have decent schools.

Let’s suppose the average mid-level Toyota earns $150,000 annually. In he or she immediately pays fifteen in state income taxes. In the employee pays zero tax. That is fifteen more to spend on vacations, a car, sending the kids to school whatever.

And remember California, being ruled by the in the teachers’ unions, offers employee nearly the worst schools in the nation, while has better than average

On the other hand, Gov. Brown yes, the now geriatric Moonbeam of the 1970s and ’80s dismissed the news, hubristically that “[w]e’ve got a few problems, we lots of little burdens and and taxes, but smart people out how to make it.”

So there’s our for Toyota’s move: the Toyota are just stupid!

The LA Times . the of the progressive left in Southern echoed Brown’s ludicrous in a piece trying to show the Toyota move had nothing to do bad business conditions in California.

But if is obtuse here, it is Governor and the LAT. He is the one who gave the public the right to unionize, knowing their dues would to his party. In the three decades pay and pension benefits for public-sector have ballooned, and the state an unfunded pension liability of of $500 billion. Moonbeam is the one who to build any new freeways, leading to the traffic gridlock workers endure. He has generally pushed an environmentalist agenda that has water and inexpensive housing and it is he who will be driving the cost of through the roof over the few years.
