Remain At Your Own Risk! Another Major Business Operator Pulls Out Of Chicago

But it’s not just large and midsize employers that have had enough of Chicagoland crime. Small business owners like Jessica Nguyen have had to close their doors due to devastating burglaries and criminal harassment, and Mayor Lightfoot has even taken the bizarre approach of proactively shutting down small businesses with the intention of reducing surging gang-related crime: an ass-backward governmental strategy if ever there was one.

The opposite is true for migration winners like Florida. Gains in people and income pile on top of each other each year, building an ever-growing tax base. In 2020 alone, the state’s tax base was some $197 billion higher due to the 20-year string of positive income gains from net in-migration.

A report from national moving company North American Moving Services revealed that Illinois, New York, and New Jersey were the top three outbound states in 2020, with Idaho, Arizona, and Tennessee receiving the highest share of incoming residents among states.
