Yeah, sign up bonus for HQ2 in crystal city are currently around $100k. What a nightmare for LIC that would have been.


Look beyond the tweet:

“ New York was ready to provide $800 million more of incentives for HQ2 than previously mentioned. This included $500 million for a "Center for Commercial Innovation" near the headquarters to help Amazon partner with colleges on research, and even an offer to pay 25 percent of some graduates' first-year salaries. This was reportedly meant to help Amazon achieve workplace diversity.”

again, if these were tax credits, the net benefit to NYC tax receipts would have still been positive

Quote:
The state’s initial offer included $1.4 billion of tax credits based on the number of employees hired and $1.1 billion of various grants.

[...]

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, has repeatedly pointed out that Amazon’s Queens campus was projected to increase city and state tax revenue by as much as $27.5 billion over 25 years.



and what is bad about this?

Quote:
The workforce incentives were designed with upstate areas in mind, the official said, and to help disadvantaged populations.


there also would have been knock-on effects for the rest of the NYC economy, which boosts tax revenue. with Amazon setting up shop it would have attracted a large tech labor pool, and that would have led other corporations to boost their tech presence there in order to feed off the tech labor pool.

plus the area surrounding the HQ would have boosted property values and with it tax receipts

Donald Trump was totally out of line with that drone attack on the Iranian General and all this will do is cause a chain reaction in which more ‘regular people’ in that region suffer and become refugees

I do think Iranian theocracy is primitive and their regime brutal and intolerant, however. Referring to America as ‘the Great Satan’ oversimplifies the complexity of International Affairs and ultimately serves the interests of a tiny Iranian kleptocracy at the expense of most of its citizens.


Kill yourself.


I realize this has been a challenging few days. Let’s just shake hands and let bygones be bygones

'I really hope she is the future': AOC's support of Sanders fuels 2024 speculation

It was billed as a rally for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign. But the only aging white man on the platform was the film-maker Michael Moore, and attendee Brittany Springmeier wasn’t there to see him.

She was in Iowa City for real star of the show, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

“She’s speaking for us. She’s speaking for the people. She has a passion for the millennials. She’s speaking for everyone in America who doesn’t have a voice,” said Springmeier, a millennial herself who is unable to work because of a disability.
