"I continue to wonder why any company, like a manufacturer, remains in California."

Sell there yes, but produce anything you can out of state and ship it in.
Even as a service business we do a bit of this, no longer stick-building anything but having all our buildings, cabins, stores, etc built in Arizona as modular buildings and then shipped to California. Even our labor force is partially "imported", as we hire folks who live in their RV's to come from all over the country to live and work at our campgrounds. - -Regulatory Suffocation | Coyote Blog

Your Say

Some of these companies ARE run by liberal freaks who like abuse.

It is also correct that regulations are promoted often by established companies as a barrier to entry for potential competitors.

Regarding California, I have two friends, native Californians, who set up a thriving hot tub sales and installation company in Northern California. The business was literally driven under by state inspections and regulations. Even though their accounts were correct to the penny, they were constantly audited by the state tax authority.

They told me that the attitude of the state bureaucracy is that you are a potential criminal if you have your own business.

This particular couple finally left California and set up another hot tub business in Texas, where they are doing well.
