After six decades of doing business in California, Toyota is moving its North American headquarters to Texas. That means 3,000 of the carmaker's jobs will be leaving Torrance and going to Plano, perhaps convincing California officials they should stop Texas Gov. Rick Perry at the border the next time he attempts to come to the Golden State for another raid on businesses. Toyota's surprise relocation will throw more gasoline on the burning argument about which state is a better economic model for the nation. California and Texas, two giant, powerhouse states that could stand on their own among the world's biggest economies, are seen as the perfect contrast between a high-regulation blue state and a low regulation red state.

CHICAGO -- French students and unions have been protesting for weeks over a law making it easier for companies to get rid of employees. Under the measure recently signed by President Jacques Chirac, companies may fire workers younger than 26 during their first two years on the job - for no reason whatsoever. The demonstrators think that's a bad idea, and they're right. Here's a better one: Let companies fire any workers of any age at any time for no reason at all. It may seem as though my proposal would be great for greedy corporations but lousy for ordinary workers.

The plan to move 450 jobs from the Financial Management Services facility in Hyattsville to the Bureau of Public Debt in Parkersburg, W.Va., has been postponed for five years, members of the Maryland congressional delegation announced Thursday. The move — proposed by the Obama administration to save $96 million over five years — was set to begin in February 2014, but the Maryland congressional delegation negotiated with the Treasury Department for the delay. "We must have a more frugal government, but not one that hangs our people out to dry," Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski said in a statement.

Chesapeake Shipbuilding said Wednesday that it has signed a contract to acquire about three acres of property adjacent to the shipyard. The acquisition would allow the company to expand and create as many as 125 new jobs. The land, located on the Wicomico River, is now an empty lot with a "derelict" bulkhead, the company said in a press release. The company designs and builds commercial steel vessels and has been in Salisbury for more than 30 years. - Andrea K. Walker

Middle River Aircraft Systems will hire 200 people at its eastern Baltimore County plant during the next year to build brake systems for a redesigned jet that aircraft developer Boeing will soon bring to market. The additional jobs will raise the number of employees at the 1.7 million-square-foot plant to 1,000 at a time when most companies are still wary about hiring even as the economy shows signs of bottoming out. The planned hirings are a bright spot for the state's embattled manufacturing sector, which had been slowly deteriorating years before the recession hit. "This shows that companies like Middle River that really know how to embrace next-generation manufacturing can have job growth," said Mike Galiazzo, executive director of the Regional Manufacturing Institute.

When the Defense Department set out to consolidate its domestic bases, Maryland officials sought to win big. They not only prevailed - with Maryland gaining more than any other state from the realignment plan that became law Tuesday - they hit the jackpot. The latest estimates - and they keep growing - are that the plan will bring more than 11,000 new jobs to the Aberdeen Proving Ground and Fort Meade within five years. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Add another 7,500 new jobs expected at the National Security Agency at Fort Meade.
