    MSM did not really push this one too hard on front pages but when Obama was in Silicone Valley couple days ago, Intel announced it is going to start building their 3rd plant in Chandler AZ starting this fall. The 5 billion dollar plant will use 2000 construction workers in the next 2 years and employ over 1,000 full time workers.
    Now why was this so low key? Arizona is a right to work state, and almost all those jobs will be NON UNION.
    Ask yourself why the Midwest union state govs are trying to take away all their restrictions and regulations with unions at the present time? This is not rocket science.

    I worked in Chandler for several years at another Semiconductor besides Intel. (Guess which one.) Is that where you are? I'm glad the Phoenix area is getting some boost to their devastated economy.

    I was going to tell my friend in Chandler about this. He recently got laid off from Orbital Sciences.
    But, if this ain't rocket science I guess he need not apply.

    Boeing and Google are bringing a combined 12,000 jobs to Charleston,SC.

    Boeing chose SC over Seattle. Why? They literally said non-union labor was why. Low taxes. No unions. Means better business.

    Now 12,000 South Carolinians will be watching future Seattle union protests....from the break room of their jobs at Boeing and Google in Charleston.

    Using this logic, the U.S should try to emulate China since they get the most jobs of anyone.

    And what kind of special tax breaks did they get to locate there?
    Breaks that other SC businesses do not get.

    And on the low key thing I guess the liberal media did not want to brag on the jobs and have it linked to Obama?
    But yes this is not new news anyway.

    They got awesome tax breaks.

    And guess what? A massive Boeing plant, with 6,000 well paid workers........are gonna buy homes, buy lunch, buy groceries, enroll in schools, pay payroll taxes, pay sales taxes, attract corporate events and visits, which spend money in hotels...etc.

    In short, a giant plant sparks an entire region. JUST LIKE the big BMW plant basically rose the Greenville-Spartanburg region of SC's economy like a rising tide. Greenville went from a stagnant town in upstate SC to now the states most populated county, fastest growing city, and one of the cities that is above water and actually building parks and running a balanced budget.

    Attracting big business works. South Carolina has figured that out. So yes, Boeing got a big tax deal. And all their employees are gonna be spending their money in Charleston, SC instead of Seattle, WA. How do the small business owners of Seattle feel about that?

    I suppose you would rather stick to ideology, however, and NOT offer the tax break and just see Boeing go elsewhere? WHO wins in that scenario?
