Melton International Tackle, which sells fishing gear worldwide, is marking 20 years in business in Anaheim during 2013. It may be the last.
Owner Tracy Melton is consulting with his financial experts and exploring other locations for his 30-employee company. He says recent state tax hikes may be the final straw that drives him out of what he considers to be a state unfriendly to businesses.
"I am not rich by any means," Melton said "I work hard, keep 30 people off unemployment, and my reward is that the state and feds want to take more than half of any profit I make."

....yeah....and Spokeshave is thinking about emigrating again...to Texas.
Stinking rich, ungrateful capitalist. He’s damn lucky to have kept 50% of what he makes. No one deserves to keep more than $50K, if their not members of the Party. California should justifiably appropriate all of his assets prior to his departure. /s
I can give Mister Ray-Robbins the "facts".
I live in California, and in an allegedly nice area.
Perhaps Mister Ray-Robbins would like a tour of the boarded-up homes and businesses that are literally everywhere, and the number is GROWING.
Perhaps Mister Ray-Robbins is enured to the sad sight of welfare rats just walking around with their eyes fixed with that vacant, hopeless look that they always have.
Mister Ray-Robbins appears to have no compunction about the Big Lie.
These are the only types of businesses California wants: medical, software, or Green. They think an economy can be based solely on these types of companies paying a small number of professionals high salaries while the entire welfare state and giant government gets to ride on their backs for free.
I guess we'll see how that works out for them...
Indeed and Brown cooks the books and tells the media the state is in the balck,they swallow it.
And the evil rich (worker bees) must be punished more the 13% state tax needs to be doubled. /s
The lure of California is full of barbs.
Hope he brings his biz to Fla. We’ve got a few places he can test new products.
Time to cast off, I suppose.
