<< They have been driving the price of homes way, way up

cheap. They don't consider how low the wages around
here is as compared to CA.
On top of all of that, they tend to vote for the

that they have just escaped from! They don't seem to

I know what you say is true. Also the people that can't get welfare in this
state anymore are moving to states with lenient laws as to length of
residency and good services.
The others are the ones who sold out during the beginnings of the boom and
made a ton of profit from thier homes, so they can go elsewhere and overpay
to get a new place at what they consider a great price.
I don't know where everyones moving to these days but a few years ago there
was a lot of people going to Salt Lake City, and after that it was Colorado
Springs, and a few years before that it was to the Carolina's. Usually these
are the techs that are following the work into new area's.
I remember talking to Lockheed employees about 15 years ago about their
moving to Texas. They would transfer to new fascilities there at their
present pay, but would not get scheduled pay raises per the current contract.
This was supposedly because Texas was a right to work state with less
unionization and these California workers would be making close to double
what the locals would and with the lower cost of living there would be much
more financially secure than they would living in California. Only a few
figured it out and actually went.
