Companies Fleeing California For Utah Over Confiscatory Tax Rate "Computer software giant Adobe, computer game monster EA Games, and Internet auction king ebay are abandoning California to set up shop in Utah. Why? California‚Äôs horrid business climate and high taxes. Adobe Systems, maker of a suite of graphics programs such as Adobe PDF, Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign, have announced that they are building a $100 million facility in either Salt Lake City or in nearby Utah County, Utah. The facility will bring thousands of jobs to Utah over the next few decades. In May the Internet auction company ebay also announced a major new facility to be built in Salt Lake City. The $287 million data center will also bring hundreds of new jobs to the Bee Hive State." Companies Fleeing California For Utah Over Confiscatory Tax Rate | Nevada News and Views I'm cheering these companies on...PLEASE, leave California!! Now that Gov. Arnold and the state legislature refuse to do anything about their horrible deficit, they SHOULD pay a heavy price for their irresponsibility. They refuse to address horrendous PROBLEMS with their Welfare system and state union workers' pensions. I know if a responsible person had such financial problem, they'd cut spending to fit their budget. FIX THE BUDGET!!
