    This OP obviously doesn't know what a publically traded company is, and who owns it. Hint: Countless public and private employee pension plans own Apple, omg those evil Teachers unions are sucking up corporate welfare ALARM!! :laugh:

    I get that. But it's irrelevant. The question is equal protection. Should everyone be allowed to "buy" tax abatements?

    Corporate welfare produces jobs and a desired product.

    Social welfare produces urine and feces.

    You make the call.
