Will California turn it around?
As someone who has lived in California their entire life, this state is completely mismanaged. Too many regulations, taxes, high rent prices, traffic, wildfires, and shutdowns are driving people and companies out of the state.
Big companies continually are shifting all of their headquarters elsewhere running from state taxes and high wages. Tesla, HP, Oracle, Charles Schwab,, McKesson, CBRE, DropBox are all moving headquarters or completely downsizing their California presence.
Since the pandemic, California has remain mostly closed when compared to other states. Indoor dining, movie theaters, gyms, churches, salons have all been closed or only open so minimally. Outdoor dining was shutdown without good reason. Despite this aggressive push, nothing is improving. We're now the state with the highest number of cases. This is just a complete joke!
I work in downtown San Francisco and it's just plain filth out there. The mayor is taking huge pride in being the first city in the country to shelter-in-place yet she never went to actually fix the bigger issues tied to homelessness and the excessive garbage all over the city. Tons of needles and poop everywhere on the sidewalks next to luxury high rises charging $3600 for a 1-bedroom.
Newsom is a huge clown who can't get it together to run this state. Everyone is against him (democrats, republicans, liberals, conservatives). I can't think of anyone who actually likes him.
Will California actually get it together?
