- Full list on Forbes: The top 9 states people are fleeing in 2014
Predictable- largely welfare states with high taxes, oppressive and corrupt governments. If you conect the dots over time, you see a pattern developing where companies steathily build new facilities in human frendly states where education and hard work are rewarded and slackers are less likely to scam the system due to close scrutiny to weed out these parastes. Even financial services are creeping out of NYC by setting up satellite offices in business friendly states - it is no random occurance that Amazon, Caterpillar, GE, GM, have and now Apple is considering new faciities in TX.
As far as the claim the North,East and West are sustainable is absurd. A 30 day interruption in energy supplies and their byproducts from TX ad LA would collapse these areas.
GOD BLESS TEXAS and other sates that champion the individual.
Dont they know there is a lot MORE LAND west of there??
Underemployment trumps NO EMPLOYMENT any day. Apparently you know nothing about the wage scale of the manufacturing entities in southern and Southwest states. A high school graduate can make $80,000 as a truck driver in the oil patch in Texas.
VL, you must be on the public doie in some way and see your source of support eroding as tax paying companies and people leave your state.
Dont worry. According to the current admin, you can soon choose to not work and persue your dreams. Fact is, most of the pepole adopting this path are indulging in FANTASY.
If anyone thinks the exodus from oppressive states wil slow, Dallas FT Worth has over 20,000 apartments currently under construction,Add other TX metro areas, single family construction , retail, medical facilities, schools, then tell me TX is on the wrong path.
By the way, over 25% of ALL the active drilling rigs in the WORLD are operatng in TX.
The way povety rates are calculated by the government are bogus. At best, a snapshot at a particular point in time.Studies reveal that after 10 years only 30% or less in states where opporunity abounds, like TX, are the same people from the 10 year old data Many get educations, develop marketable skills, learn english and move toward middle class status.
A huge % of those that remain mired in poverty are immigrants that refuse to learn english and assimilate into our society.
UNIVERSAL LAW- if you dont do the work, you cant have the prize..
