California Businesses are fleeing the state because of the Democrat’s hostile leftist ideology toward business

Good luck with “recovery” when the only ones working will be public sector union employees. November 2 is almost here!

Via the Business Relocation Coach;

The pace of businesses disinvesting in California has accelerated. In a period just shy of the first three quarters of this year, 144 companies have engaged in California Disinvestment Events – nearly three times the level detected for all of 2009.
Quite clearly, the exodus of businesses out of California continues. It makes sense for companies to reduce their California footprint considering the ample supply of attractive, lower-cost alternative locations. Unless California reduces its hostility toward business, we will see more commercial enterprises seeking friendlier locations in which to relocate entirely or at least place facilities there that used to be located here.
Sept. 23 update: See additional commentary related to this post at Fox & Hounds Daily, which focuses on California business and politics.

The figures reflect company events found in public domain information only. The real exodus of companies from California is probably incalculable because so many are implemented without public notice.

Defining “California Disinvestment Events”

Before getting into specifics, please note that this section, Part I, portrays California Disinvestment Events, which are companies that:

  • Move complete HQ’s, factories, R&D labs, and other facilities out of state
  • Close a facility completely – no relocation – while those jobs migrate to out-of-state competitors who gain business formerly in California
  • Close only part of a facility and move it to one or more places elsewhere
  • Keep their HQ here but deflect substantial capital into facilities elsewhere that in prior years would have been located in California
  • Threaten to leave the state but have not yet done so
  • Cancelled plans to move to California

Also, Rankings and Caveats follow in separate blog postings as follows:
