Cat's Cuts More Local Jobs as They Move Divisions to Michigan
While the JS reported the news, they left out a key phrase: MICHIGAN IS A RIGHT-TO-WORK state while Democrat controlled (think big generally hostile unions) Illinois is the worst state in the union to expand a business. But the JS, dominated by Democrats in management, has long been one of the reasons Illinois residents who are financially able to move, are moving out surpassing the number that are moving in. Businesses generally move to Illinois when the State and local politicians give them perks that return to most taxpayers are higher taxes. In Peoria, both sales tax and property taxes are higher than almost anywhere in the country. And Lathan and Mike Everett want to raise sales taxes at least 1%. If these business killers make it on the ballot, i highly suggest a no vote.
