I'm surprised that California wasen't in the moving out of list. Democrats have destroyed this state.

I'm thinking maybe the rest of those states are now balancing out that trend or the profile of the typical Headquarters federal employee has changed.
A lot of agencies have a number of their headquarters employees stationed in field offices now.

Its easier for them to hire talent that may not want to move, they are closer to the work they are assigned to and communicating with Washington is easy based on current technology.

Even with all the political problems, California is still the economic big dog in the country. It's advantage is so large it will take a lot more mismanagement to change that.

Californians are the best thing to happen to Utah.

Welcome to America.
Says who? I bet the people who now have to work on Sunday don't think so.

I'd just have to suck it up and deal with the liberalism.

The issue people like me have with people moving to nice parts of the South from liberal areas, citing high taxes, lack of growth, etc, then voting for politicians that want to implement the exact same ideas they ran from is that they want to change what they moved to to what they moved from.
I always tell people this true liberal/conservative story. I'm conservative. I spent most of my life in liberal NY State, and a number of years in liberal Maryland and Washington DC where the federal workers would vote Democrat for their pay raises. Every election my Republican national candidates (President, Senate, House) never won. When I retired and decided to move to Tennesse, I thought finally, my vote will count.

Now I always lose in the primaries.

As conservative as I am, I think the South is going to be emptying out of working age people who have the means to go north where the jobs are and become a playground for the rich and retired. I have watched most of my peers abandon TN not because they necessarily wanted to move, but because they have to work. They'll find jobs in MD or NY, but can't find anything above $10/hr in the South.

And you live in Sylmar?

Come and live in libertarian and republican infested Utah. You'll be singing California's praises in short order.
