Hey Texansfan, just FYI I'm trying to hire no less than 10 people in a current 50 person company because the business is there (aerospace manufacturing). Only problem is a good majority the bums walking in are just getting an application to take back to the unemployment office so they can say they are "trying to get a job" but when we tell them that there's a drug test they mysteriously disappear to never be seen again...the Thunderbird is still cheap and the mailbox money is still coming at the first of the month I see....

LoL seriously?
Where are you advertising?
You thought about hiring via a staffing service?
With unemlloyment rates so low you may have to sweeten the pot to attract and retain the employees you are seeking.

I need to hire 6 engineers at 120k per year in Houston but can't find anyone. They say why make 120k in Houston when I can make 200k in California with better weather and better food choices?

I feel your pain brother.

Companies are fleeing California
But if you're in tech and wanted to choose a place Houston/Dallas vs The Bay Area/NYC you'd be a fool to come to Texas unless you wanted your career to die/stagnate.

Yes Austin has some tech companies but the genesis of most of it all (and that VC money)is still in the bay area

There must be alot of fools then, Texas specifically Austin area is growing at a staggering pace and stealing companies and hi tech employees by the thousands daily. Itís conservative policyís that the Texas legislation has passed to lure big corporations to Texas, California and New York has done the exact opposite letís see who comes out ahead.

The Lone Star State has maintained its No. 1 standing on U-Haul's annual top 50 growth states for the third consecutive year.

U-Haul collects migration data from more than 2 million one-way truck sharing transactions every year to determine which states are considered "growth" states and ranks them accordingly.............

Ranking last was Illinois. California — which has seen a number of companies relocate to Texas — also took a low spot, No. 47.

It is called quality of life.
How many people on this board yearn to "get out of the city" and live in their barndo on 40 acres in Boerne, Weatherford or Van?
No matter if they make less money, they are seeking that quality of life.
If you're a lgbtwlmnop Software Engineer why would you want to go to Texas which is not promoted as one of the most "progressive" states in the union?
If you're living that lifestyle California and NYC you see tons of them walking down the street holding hands and kissing at bars.
That ain't happening in The Woodlands or Frisco.
Yes, some companies are relocating
But if you're really in the hard core tech industry you'll know that The Bay Area is the Holy Gail for that VC money.
Google Uber Apple Amazon are basically down the street from one another
Then, they can't walk down the street and smoke weed like they can in California
Folks under 30 years old have totally different set of criteria than a 40+ deer hunter
I want people to work in Texas but the good candidates are on the coasts and want to work remotely from there.

And you're using uhaul stats.
LoL
Who uses uhaul to move these days?
Do you know what uhaul's customer base demographic is?
If you make 100k+ why are you worried about spending $20 plus $1 a mile on a truck?
Genentech pilfered two of my employees last year.
They both got moving allowances and are living in $6k per month corporate housing out there until they got situated.
They didn't worry about uhaul.
I know what I paid them and they told me the amount Genentech offered would be foolish for them to pass up.
So I'm sure it was over 200k

On the weather...
You could pay me three times what I make now to live and work in Wisconsin and I would not do it.
On new years day I had my annual bbq and I walked around my yard barefoot and in shorts.
Can't do that in Madison.

Other enjoyment factors...
Transportation to the office
In the bay area and NYC they catch subways/public transportation
Is that really a thing in Austin Houston or Dallas?

I will say that SXSW sheds a great light on Austin for many out of towners
What does houston have? The Rodeo? LoL!
I love it but city folk from the coasts aren't fond of farm animals or 26 days of Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan and Kenny Chesney.

LoL ok let go back to those uhaul stats.
If the average monthly rent on a 1br apartment is $3500 in LA and $5500 in San Francisco do you think someone from out of state will be renting UHAUL to do their move???
Think about that
You pay $40k - $70k per year in only rent and you're gonna fuss around with packing loading and moving your own stuff?
It only costs about $1k for movers.

Again, I'd like to see the origination zip codes and destination zip codes for those UHAUL rentals.

27 year old software engineers with 5 years experience don't care about any of that.

Wait.

How did we get here? On this topic.

Something something about the economy.

Oh anyhow, the silicon valley tech scene is filled with foreigners from the middle East and east Asia so when all that tech moves to Austin they are bringing the H1-B visa holders with them.

With that will come much of the things TBH complain about.

Oh, silicon valley doesn't usually vote Republican so that's another thing to get ready for.
