SC is a less expensive place, but I am willing to bet much of the difference comes from union (CA) vs. non-union (SC) affiliations. I doubt BMWNA will be building plants in California any time soon.

No. You are wrong. It is less expensive because most things are cheaper. Rents are lower, restaurant food is cheaper, houses cost less, there are fewer services and the taxes are lower. You know, it is cheaper because it costs less.

That's why retirees move there. Lower taxes, they vote against all school budgets, cheaper houses, lower utilities, it is just cheaper to live there overall.
