An owner that actually cares about his/her employees? That is exteremly respectable. Especially when it comes to being located in N. MPLS. That is great news! It should be on the front page!

Most small business owners truly do care about the people that work for us. In a small business we are right there working with them side by side. Heck in an average week I spend more time with my employees than my family. I get excited when I see one of my employees buy their first house or new car or go back to school, because I know if they are successful then I am successful. Yet we often get lumped into that same evil empire stereotype that big business and labor have worked so hard to foster. And when the government goes to give handouts it goes for things like parking ramps at the MOA which they then subsidize by raising my taxes which in the end takes money out of my employees pockets as well as mine. Its time we relooked at our corporate tax structure, commercial property tax structure and subsidy programs like TIFF to reward and strengthen the small businesses that contribute to our communities and quit giving handouts to the Walmarts that just suck from them.

It seems incredibly stupid to me that JOBZ would provide an incentive to move a small business OUT of North Minneapolis. Why would you spend state money and provide state benefits to move a business from one struggling community to another? At the very least, JOBZ needs a serious overhaul- if not a complete dismantling- if this is the case.

And as such, they should be given every tax break that the state,county and city has. I love that Mr. Anderson has such a worldview, that he will stay and contribute a positive presence on the north side of Minneapolis, not only remaining there, but increasing the job and tax base of the city as well. I know this, there are many more Mr. Andersons that deserve kudos for doing the same thing.
