Everyone is talking about the $40 Million giveaway to Goodyear, and it’s pretty bad. But that’s not the end of the story. In addition to the $40 million in taxpayer money through the Job Maintenance and Capital Development Fund (JDIG), they also get:
$10 million in tax breaks towards the plant?s electric power bill
$4.4 million in cash from Cumberland County and the city of Fayetteville
$2.6 million worth of free training at the local community college for the plant?s workers
How much did you get today?
Better question: how hard did you work today so this international, multi billion dollar company could get your tax dollars?
