Remember our Prop 23/AB-32 debate, when we were assured by our local left that high tech companies like Apple would save the California economy?
Well, maybe not consider this from the Tech West:
Apple Inc. plans to create a $304 million campus in Austin, Texas, which will add 3,600 jobs over the next decade, more than doubling its labour force in the city.
The Cupertino, California, customer device huge already employs thousands in Austin, whose tasks include handling customer issues and support.
“Our operations in Austin has grown dramatically over the past decade from less than 1,000 in 2004 to more than 3,500 today,” Apple spokesman Steve Dowling said.
Apple has started more construction at it’s newly completed North Carolina Data Center, expanding it’s capacity to meet the iCloud demand. While Apple is building a new headquarters in California to house existing employees, new jobs are going to Texas and North Carolina
