Nevada will pay Tesla $100,000 per job per year for twenty years. Each job will pay about $45,000 per year. What kind of economic development is this? Greg LeRoy of GoodJobsFirst.org and I talk about this, Walmart, Boeing, Cabela’s, and others as government economic development officials across the country vie for fewer and bigger companies. Does this make sense? Are taxpayers being burdened with no-win tax subsidies for big corporations? Isn’t there a better way?
