The cost of living is a huge issue. It’s getting so you need to work for a company with a successful exit to afford to stay. If you work for one of the 80% that don’t make it, then you can’t afford to stay long-term. It’s even worse if you consider most of the startups with a successful exit don’t maintain their success. 3-years after IPO most are trading below their IPO price. So you’ll attract a bunch of young people that want to roll the dice, and once they strike out a few times they’ll leave to somewhere more affordable. Even ones that make it might wake up one day and realize CA taxes are insane.
