GE incentives HA HA HA

I work for GE. I know for a fact from seeing internal memos that GE has already planned to bring in those employees here. They are now constructing a new parking lot, a new engineer facility which is 6 stories high, a visitors center, and a central cafe. The county doesn't have to give them the incentives to do this. GE is doing it anyway. All this is about is so a politician can take credit during his/her campaign for bringing jobs here. The same thing happened a couple of years ago when the county or city gave GE $250,000 to bring 250 employees here from California. When the county made the announcements, GE was already shifting office furniture and making renovations to accomidate the new employees. (It was already in the works) GE gave the $250,000 back as an education grant. So the politician got what they wanted and GE got what they wanted by being seen in the public eye as a good community business and also get the tax write off. People, we need to speak up and say NO to our tax dollars going for tax incentives to corporations. You might say, "Those jobs will go out of our state or out of our country." SO!!! Most of the time this is a lame argument. Most of the time it's not affordable because of the tariffs to bring the product back in the US. The state battles must be stopped in congress. Tax payers monies must not be used to buy businesses to come to our towns. The politicians will also say, "It's an investment." FALSE!!! Have you ever heard of a politician give us back our tax money once their investment began to give them a return? ABSOLUTELY NOT. So don't believe them. They are lieing. WE NEED TO CALL THE POLITICIANS ON THIS. IT'S A SCAM, AND WE THE TAX PAYERS ARE GETTING ROBBED.
