timbo - Risk = Reward. That is how business works. Why should a community not take risks in order to reap rewards. In today's competitive world, if Chattanooga didn't provide incentives then all the jobs, revenue, economic impact, etc. would have gone to Mexico. We already lost an Audi plant and the economic impact that would have brought. Over 20 years, Chattanooga and Hamilton County will have lost hundreds of millions of dollars.
What we don't do very well is making sure the incentives are used effectively to get maximum return on our investment.
The VW employee meeting for the SUV announcement started promptly at 10:15. The press was there.
I didn't see any stump-legged people there, so I guess you wouldn't know what time we started. Alprova... you are such a sad little man.
A lot of applause by employees when Sen. Corker and Gov. Haslam spoke in today's employee presentation. No sign of any UAW reps and mention of the UAW at all.
The R&D Center was great news. We had not heard about that part.
Great day for Tennessee and Chattanooga. Lots of happy Germans too after winning the World Cup.
Alprova said: "t'll be over soon and I'm going to ignore the man for the rest of the day,"
HAHAHA... how many promises have you made to date... only to "change your mind"?
Sad little man.
There is no one at Volkswagen that is opposed to a Works Council. Show me one place where that has ever been said. The majority do not want to make a deal with the devil to get it. Would you infect yourself with a cancer to become more energetic?
Stop twisting the truth.
What planet is ibshame on? UAW can open a local chapter in BF Egypt. It doesn't mean a thing to the pharos.
Plan to start a new business myself timbo. I too will subscribe to your practices. It is important towards building a quality team, that makes a quality product. I won't have room for slackers and it is not fair to those that do work.
CPA's typically sit in chairs while they work. I guess your union couldn't fix that.
For your entertainment Alprova...
Detroit Auto Workers Busted on the Job Drinking Beer & Smoking Pot on Break.flv
Right next to the UAW offices. Hmmm...
The UAW got their jobs back too. That crap doesn't happen at VW.
Does it say what time? How about 10:15 AM.
Actually I am an anti-THUG facilitator.
Are you still a CPA?
