We told the lefty debaters companies would leave the state as a result of AB-32 implementation, and here we are seeing the results!

SACRAMENTO, CA –  Comcast has announced it is closing all three of its California call centers because of the negative business climate in the Golden State.

The move affects roughly 1,000 employees in Sacramento, Livermore and Morgan Hill, according to Comcast spokesman Bryan Byrd.

Those jobs are going to Oregon, Washington and Colorado.  This is just the trickle, the flood will come after the Cap and Trade auctions in November.  Stay Tuned.

    Seattle local TV news announced ComCasts planned move to WA. The cost of breaking down the CA centers and setting up new facilities and training new workers in WA puts perspective on the coming costs of staying in CA.
