The numbers are staggering. California residents with an income between 42,000 to 125,000 are leaving California in the masses – Since 2016, a 91% increase. That is close to 700,000 people, and rising, who have left for greener pastures. This represents the highest exodus rate in the nation. When the questions are asked of these people why, the answers are many. A couple common responses are – “we just can’t afford to stay” or “looking for a better quality of life”.
