A lot of businesses just moved to Atlanta from CA. Mine just moved hundreds of positions there. The business climate is tough in CA and they just raised the min wage.


Atlanta will be an option for me.

I asked one person and that's exactly what she said. She said her job moved here.

I've never been to Atlanta , only Savannah in GA which was very nice.
I know the film industry is growing and pretty big in Atlanta now too, so since LA has a big film industry it makes sense people would move from L.A to Atlanta.
A $6billion impact to the economy according to this :
Newsroom | Georgia Department of Economic Development

With housing prices the way they are, if people want to buy a home it seems like a nobrainer to move to a less expensive city like Atlanta versus stay in L.A and struggle and hope for a big housing crash.

Baldwin Hills is fine; you mean Baldwin Village.

I've seen quite a few Georgia plates here in LA. In fact I've seen plates from all over the country here.
