Food City and Welfare

Bluefield, WV

#1 Dec 28, 2012
Food City took 6 million dollars from tax payers to subsidize their corporate office in Abingdon, VA. This is called corporate welfare. Some companies use their political connections to get handouts from the government. This is not free market capitalism.
In addition, this company blocks competition on a routine basis. The worst example is in WV where they actually blocked a competitor...costing the community jobs and property value.
