Nehring Statement on Reports Toyota Plans to Shift Jobs from Torrance to Texas
Former California Republican Party Chairman and candidate for Lt. Governor Ron Nehrin issued the following statement in response to multiple press reports that Toyota will announce it is moving marketing division jobs from its Torrance headquarters to Texas:
“If these reports are true, it represents another setback for California under one party Democrat control. In the last few years more than 50 California companies have either moved to or expanded in Texas, creating more than 14,000 jobs there. We need these jobs in California, and that requires bold steps that the ruling party in Sacramento is either unwilling or unable to make.
“Creating a better environment for job growth requires making California more competitive. Today we have too much taxing, regulating and litigating to generate the jobs needed to combat the nation’s highest poverty rate and its fourth highest unemployment rate.
