Occasionally I vent about my home state and today is one of those days. The Government of the State of California is anti-business (except for taxing them) and can’t understand when companies choose not to expand to the State to be abused. Toyota announced today that they are closing their California plant (NUMMI) that they shared with GM until GM pulled out.
Everyone seems surprised that Toyota chose to close the plant and build cars elsewhere in the US. Why?
The, which represents workers at the facility, called the decision devastating and accused Toyota of abandoning workers and the state. No, just the State. The workers are an unfortunate side-effect. But then those same workers likely voted for the legislators in office in California, so perhaps they need to think about who is really costing them their jobs.
Anyway, enough of a rant for today.
