GA and MN should get together and agree not to offer aid. This corporate welfare is a zero sum game when all states play it. If states would all agree to stop, American citizens would be the victors.

Maybe, if the citizens of Minnesota are really lucky the state will fork over enough incentives to get them and then they'll do what Anderson Windows did to the state.

Boy, this is a toughie. High-tax, pro-Teamster DFL-controlled state versus low-tax, business-friendly state. Hmmm... I wonder which way it will go.

The goal is to be more competitive. If they think they can get better workers in GA and there will suddenly be suddenly be a geographical shift that makes Georgia more central to both raw material and customers, why then it will be great. They won't need a blast furnace to melt the glass in the summer, either. More savings!

"Our workforce is our main advantage" -- Please tell use how MN's workforce is better than GA? Today's workforce is highly mobile, they will go where the jobs are.

Right to work vs union, pro business vs villainizing successful businesspeople. According to Gov Dayton, those successful businesspeople are "Not paying their fair share". Once these tax increases area passed, you will start to see Ross Perot's giant sucking sound of jobs and capital going to where it is appreciated and not villainized.
