    MARS, Pa. (AP) — A German company is building a high-tech manufacturing plant near Pittsburgh.

    IMS Measuring Systems is building the first plant to manufacture its high-tech thickness-detection gauges outside of Germany, where the company is headquartered.

    I wrote this below the article:

    The Republican Governor of Pennsylvania just cut funding to Universities by 52% and slashed education by over a billion. Hope Pennsylvania doesn't mind "immigrants" because they will see a lot of them if they want to do anything that requires "skills" or "education".

    ------------------------------------------

    That would be bad enough. But, as the Law Center noted, “the cuts fall hardest on school districts with the greatest student poverty.” That means schools in poor districts will get less funding, while wealthy districts lose very little. So the Reading School District in Berks County, which has a frighting 90 percent student poverty rate, loses $1,083 per student, while the Wyomissing School District, with only 22 percent student poverty, is losing just $112 per student.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    I came across this and thought it was so hilarious. And so Republican:

    But that's not the best part. Travis Waldron at ThinkProgress explained that the governor did preserve a $43 million tax break for a “Bible-themed amusement park — which will include a 500-foot by 75-foot reproduction of Noah’s Ark,” as well as $11 million in spending on the highway interchange that will be near the park.

    What else can possibly be said?

    The Germans are building the factory there because they believe they can make a profit and that they also believe that they can find qualified workers there.

    This factory will pay taxes that will support schools and pay wages that encourage skilled labor.

    Only you would look for a sow's ear in a silk purse
