Central States News: State of Kansas- City of Salina- To Pay Corporate Firm for Jobs

More taxpayer-provided corporate welfare to report...

The SALINA (KS) JOURNAL reports that both the State of Kansas and that central Kansas city will pay  "Philips Lighting" nearly $2 million to make/keep 50 jobs at the Philips Salina plant.

Salina's share is $750000- with the State kicking in nearly a million more.

Small wonder the State of Kansas can't make it's budget-ends meet...

Maybe those State of Kansas employees facing a 7.5% cut in pay due to state budget contraints can apply for jobs there- since there's NO stipulation the workers have to LIVE in Salina.
