According to the Janesville Gazette, a Janesville manufacturer, United Alloy, considered expanding outside Wisconsin and ultimately ... well, read it yourself....
“Ultimately, we came back to the fact that our employee base here in Rock County is exceptional, hardworking and fully trained,” Achs said. “We believe we have world-class manufacturing talent right here in our own hometown, and we decided that it was wisest to go with the people who helped us achieve our success in the first place.”
Awww, that's so sweet.
Oh, but I almost forgot this part...
In order to keep United Alloy in Janesville, the city provided an incentive package worth $887,460, and the state kicked in a forgivable loan of $500,000 and tax credits worth up to $130,000.
Okay, so they're picking up $1.5M in collectivist hand-outs to stay put in Janesville, otherwise they would be moving out. Got it.
This was a big event as Gov. Scott Walker made sure to come into town to help celebrate with United Alloy their newfound dependency on government. It was a joyous occasion with photo ops and smiles everywhere.
But what we can also expect at some point months down the road is a donation of $10,000 or so from United Alloy to one of Janesville's or Rock County's favorite charities with Gazette headlines boasting of their generosity to our poor little community. It's called the 3-step collectivist cakewalk.
It's not a problem at all if you're into dancing one way while looking the other way. We're used to it.
