The state has finally announced how much it will give GE Aviation: $9.9 million. That is only $1 from every man, woman, and child in the state. It is assumed this is for starters only. On top of that, local governments have donated an estimated total of $10.6 million. In return, the multinational will create oodles and oodles of jobs without displacing a single one. Government will make millions and millions of dollars, and, and, and, most importantly, pad the budget of GE Aviation’s lobbying machine so it can buy more of that potion that makes all this look like a good idea.
