Re "Tesla should return state's favor" (Dan Morain, April 20): Morain moaned about Tesla building a 6,500 employee factory in another state. We should encourage that. California shouldn't feel compelled to provide jobs for the unemployed. If one job is created in California, five people flock here in hopes of getting it.

We had a housing bubble in California to end all housing bubbles. Construction people moved here to participate and want more construction even at the cost of paving over pastures, orchards and crop land. Orange County was named for its orange groves. Now try to find one.

California should never give tax breaks to anyone for bringing a business here. Charge them. All that Mark Zuckerberg and his ilk have done is make San Francisco and the Peninsula too expensive for nonzillionaires to live in. Can we pay businesses to self-deport in the immortal words of Mitt Romney who has squatted in Southern California?
