Businesses are fleeing from blue states.
The insane regulations, woke politics, and high taxes in many leftist states has created an environment where conducting business is nearly impossible.
But things have reached a new level of insanity in this state where regulators are suing one major jobs creator for some flat-out ridiculous reasons.
Over the past several years, demand for electric cars has skyrocketed, and Tesla has been at the forefront of this boom.
Their sleek cars led the industry as far as technology is concerned.
Not only that, but Tesla also provides thousands and thousands of good paying jobs.
For many years, Tesla operated out of California, as most major technology companies do.
But just recently, things got too crazy for Tesla and their famous owner, Elon Musk.
As a result of California’s overburdensome regulations and insanely high taxes, Tesla announced they are packing up and moving to Texas.
But California is not letting this major jobs creator go without a fight.
In fact, regulators in the state announced that they will be slapping Tesla with a major lawsuit.
The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (which just sounds like a complete nightmare for any conservative) announced that will be filing a lawsuit against Tesla alleging “systematic racial discrimination and harassment.”
However, officials are refusing to specify what Tesla did or is doing that is systematically racist.
In fact, nobody seems to have any idea what this lawsuit could possibly be about.
It sounds like this is some ridiculous witch hunt put together by bureaucrats in California to target big business, especially one that is leaving the state.
The outspoken rhetoric from Elon Musk against California certainly does not help either.
Let’s not forget that free speech is a very foreign concept in California these days.
This ridiculous and seemingly baseless lawsuit is a prime example of why businesses do not want to operate in California.
Hopefully a judge with some common sense will toss out this case, but who knows given some of the ridiculous crap that comes out of those west coast court systems.
Also, let’s hope Elon Musk fights back against this.
If the state of California ever hopes to stop people and businesses from fleeing the state then they need to get a grip on themselves.
Getting rid of these frivolous anti-business lawsuits and expensive social projects are good places to start.
But remember it’s California, so don’t hold your breath.
