La Mirada and Lancaster Recognized as Los Angeles County’s “Most Business-Friendly” Cities

http://laedc.org/2013/11/15/lancaste...iendly-cities/


Wow this is pretty cool for both Lancaster and La Mirada. It is a bummer that our state cannot take a more business-friendly approach!

Umm, Amazon has opened a fullfillment center in SoCal and will open ANOTHER in SoCal, so I think the state is pretty business friendly as it or we would rank as poor as Louisianan, Mississippi, etc. What businesses want are FREE LUNCHES at the taxpayer expense. And if you still don't think CA is business friendly, go to LA Live and enjoy as AEG was granted a waiver for the Bed Taxes for at least the next 20 years, or could be longer if it is amended. That's just ONE example, but plenty more of govt. giveaways to businesses.

California has been at the bottom of most surveys of the least business friendly states for many years, which certainly explains skyrocketing poverty rates (especially in the Central valley), more welfare recipients than any other state, the exodus of some 4,000,000 residents over the past 20 years according to Joel Kotkin, and a devastating shortage of children in progress and bound to get substantially worse over the next 20-30 years.

When the CEO of the Carls Jr/Hardees restaurant recently stated that the permitting process to build a restaurant in this state take 285 days vs. 8 weeks in Texas, guess which state will be getting 400+ new restaurants by the end of this decade?

Sky-high prices for essentials such as gasoline and housing courtesy of the Democrats and their environmental overlords as well as a job-killing green jobs fixation have been slamming the middle-class since Moonbeam's first stint in the Governor's mansion.

Yeah I thought that was crazy about Carls Jr.

Despite what people in CA want to say , Texas is the present and future economically speaking .

They really have their act together . CA does not in many respects , it's just not as well run .

Either because or corruption or incompetence but the results are the same for the citizens ..

I saw the name Joel Kotkin and stopped reading. Guy's a sham, as is this politically-driven poster.

Yes California could do more to speed up permitting processes, etc. No they should not emulate Texas, a state which clearly prioritizes business over its own citizens.

Also what I was going to say. Carl's Jr is great for a fast food place, but if anything Los Angeles needs less of them.
