September 22, 2013

DEAR EDITOR: I read with interest the article about the opportunity lost to bring 500 new manufacturing jobs to the Mahoning Valley....

JobsOhio is a farse. It is a way to provide extra money for the business men who support Kasich's election win. The truth came out when Kasich & the state legislature voted to hide the way the money is being spent from the state auditor and the Ohio people. Over $1 billion spent and our unemployment rate ticks up .1% this month is the telling factor.

I just can't understand why a company wishing to build or expand, would ever consider doing so in a "right to work" state vs one that is NOT "such as Ohio". Oh wait a minute, the answer just came to me, did it come to any of you staunch liberals and union members?

Look for the Union label in the private sector--no jobs here.. Look for the Union label in public sector and 30% of these are - make work jobs, nothing more.

The Mahoning Valley already has a quick strike force - it's called UNION MENTALITY - it strikes away any chance of any meaningful new jobs coming to this area in our lifetime. There are plenty of other more business friendly places both inside of Ohio in the areas that have resisted this type of poison, and certainly outside of Ohio where literally half of the states in the country have it right. Quit doing things to demonize and destroy job providing businesses and maybe someday your great grandkids will be able to have jobs right here at home too.

How about a useful comment? According to the article, it boils down to $12.50 per hour. Darned sight better than minimum wage for an unskilled worker, darned sight less than a skilled worker should make. No comments as to what the company was looking for. Did they want new infrastructure built, free land and no taxes? Would the give away have exceeded the benefits? Don't know about any one else, but since the Supreme Court has ruled that a corporation has the same rights as the individual to petition the Government, it's about time they actually support the community they chose to do business in, instead of taking away, by paying their taxes, and making improvements to the infrastructure that supports their business, just like the individual has to. South Carolina has a much higher employment rate than Ohio, so the give away was probably more than Ohio could compete with. Sorry, but I'm not for giving away the entire farm just for the opportunity to milk a couple of cows.

O'Shaunessy had no intention of coming to the Mahoning Valley. Wasn't enough freebies and bootlicking to please him.

Nacho - right on target!

Steve - I agree, but you lost me when you mentioned, "...the benefits of relocating to the Valley."

Mr. Stoyak - This article is far from complete. The difference is that our community leaders did their due-diligence and South Carolina didn't.

If you want some enlightenment, Google the phrase "Governor, Commerce Silent on Ponzi-Scheme Lawsuits".
