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!
