Blue States don't need all those dirty factory jobs anyway

After all, they support "clean", high tech, high paying industries. Oh, wait:

Adobe Systems, maker of a suite of graphics programs such as Adobe PDF, Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign, have announced that they are building a $100 million facility in either Salt Lake City or in nearby Utah County, Utah. The facility will bring thousands of jobs to Utah over the next few decades.

In May the Internet auction company ebay also announced a major new facility to be built in Salt Lake City. The $287 million data center will also bring hundreds of new jobs to the Bee Hive State.

Not to be forgotten, games maker Electronic Arts opened its new facility in July in Salt Lake City where around 100 employees are already at work.

Smartest move I ever didn't make was to California in 1989. Will the last (employed) California resident please turn out the lights on your way out?

My previous employer kept trying to "entice" me to move to San Diego to manage an upcoming contract with the Navy. Every time it was mentioned, I politely stated the company didn't make enough money to pay me to move to California; 4 miles from the border is as close as I'm willing to get.
