    I checked out a couple of companies I’m familiar with. There is no way that subsidies of $150K – $300K per job are being returned to the communities for any kind of net gain! This is outrageous, and a fine example of a disastrous economic policy that needs to be overturned! We are basically bribing businesses to come here, by robbing our communities of the resources that would make our communities MORE DESIRABLE to live in, which would THEN attract businesses! with the added benefits of increasing the quality of life for the residents! VOTE IT OUT! I think we might lose a little bit of revenue, but if we took the short-term gains, and directed them strategically (based on specific outcomes) to make our state legitimately more attractive to businesses and their employees (improving schools, paying our police officers more and training them, infrastructure investments), the state and its citizens would benefit overall!
