California Businesses Urge Amazon to Dodge LA



By Stephen Frank,  California Political News and Views

Those that know Los Angeles best are telling Amazon to stay the hell away.  Want high taxes, bad roads, traffic jams, crazy laws, than L.A. is the place.  Toyota and other major firms have Left he L.A. area and California—why would Amazon want the attorney fees, paying for lobbyists and high taxes?  Go to Texas or Florida or Tennessee—responsible governments with no taxes.

“The group asks Amazon to help it reform the statute, which has commonly been known as the “Sue Your Boss” Law since its inception in 2004.

“There are many things to love about the Golden State, but onerous laws like the Private Attorneys General Act make it difficult for employers and employees to thrive,” the ad says. “If you’re planning to locate your new headquarters here, give us a call—we’re leading the charge to reform this law, and will take all the help we can get.”

Tom Manzo is the founder of the group and president of Timely Industries, a mid-sized manufacturing company employing about 200 workers. He operates out of Pacoima, a San Fernando Valley neighborhood about 25 miles from downtown Los Angeles.”

Better yet, current firms in L.A. need to tell the City and Sacramento—you have two years to repeal the bad laws, lower the tax rates and stop the corruption—otherwise we will leave.  It will take tough love to save the City and California—does business have the guts to do that?
