Major defense contractor Lockheed Martin plans to leave San Diego

When is CA going to wake up?

A major defense contractor is moving out of state and taking 100 good paying jobs with it.

This time, it's Lockheed Martin, saying goodbye to California and its high taxes.

The defense contractor is moving command and control jobs to its headquarters in Littleton, Colo., a state that cuts California's corporate income tax in half.

"We continually evaluate our operations to identify opportunities to increase affordability," the company said in a statement. "...Reduction of duplicate laboratories and facilities operating costs improves the affordability and efficiency of our business, which better serves our customers."

Lockheed Martin opened the office in 2009 with 500 workers.
