Sales Tax in Colorado 2.9% vs 6.9% in MN, Highest income tax rate in Colorado 4.63% vs 9.85% in MN. This was not a difficult decision for their Executives (who were probably one-percenters)

The sad part is that this is so unnecessary. When Gov Dayton and the House and Senate Democrats went on their tax raising spending spree during the last Session they all but guaranteed good jobs employing many Minnesotans would leave the state. There was no reason other than a desire to spend money for the DFL to raise so many taxes and fees during the last session. No money or jobs for Minnesota's economy constructing the new facility,just a new hole in the tax base and more Minnesotans who lost good jobs in the unemployment line.Not a lot of call for flour millers in MN once Cargill and their partners move this operation to Colorado. Colorado welcomes and incentivises them while the DFL Legislature drives them away.

Be prepared for many more stories including the 1%r's staying in Florida for 6 months and a day vs 3 months during the winter to avoid Taxasota. That not only means lost state income taxes but also lost shopping at stores for those added days, lost donations in the church offering, lost sales tax collections, etc. Thanks Dems/Socialists

Don't worry, because the new CEO said that the 180 Minnesotans employed currently will get to keep their jobs for "months" after the move is complete. For those out there that do not understand how long a period "months" is - that would be 32 days.
