GE says tax credit would limit Lynn layoffs - The Boston Globe
The company thinks they have the economic power to make such demands, Art. The taxpayer might could support this. It's sad but I dun see the problem...t'aint illegal for them to ask.
The state doesn't have to give the tax credits.
Quite frankly it's none of the government's business whether or not a company hires or fires people. I can understand why GE asked for the tax credits hell it was worth a shot but the state does not "have to" give GE anything nor should it.
Sounds to me like they are saying give us $25 million or else. I'd rather they lay off the workers and split the $25 mil up amongst THEM then give in to that shit. Seriously, fuck them.
maybe they will move up here
Maine sure could use the jobs
It's a tax payer hold up. Fuck them.
$25 m divided by 3000 workers is only $8333.33 per worker
you tellin me those 3000 workers make less than that for 6 years of work?
not saying the state should give them that break, just pointing out the numbers
And the dental plans!
It's $25 million for 150 workers, multiply that number by 20.
