A Vantage Foods meat processing plant is being built in Camp Hill, Pa. I have read that your area had a plant built about 5 years ago. I would like any information about the impoact on the community that you have observed. Are they good paying jobs? Did changes to public schools, housing, crime, traffic patterns occur? Any information will be helpful.

"Trickle-down economics" and "the trickle-down theory" are terms in United States politics to refer to the idea that tax breaks or other economic benefits provided by government to businesses and the wealthy will benefit poorer members of society by improving the economy as a whole. The term has been attributed to humorist Will Rogers, who said during the Great Depression that "money was all appropriated for the top in hopes that it would trickle down to the needy." The term is mostly used ironically or as pejorative.
Proponents of tax cuts often claim that savings and investment are essential to the economy, and thus less taxes (for any and all income brackets) need not harm any other income bracket. It has been referred to as a straw-man argument. Economist George Reisman, a proponent of tax cuts, said the following: "Of course, many people will characterize the line of argument I have just given as the 'trickle-down' theory. There is nothing trickle-down about it. There is only the fact that capital accumulation and economic progress depend on saving and innovation and that these in turn depend on the freedom to make high profits and accumulate great wealth. The only alternative to improvement for all, through economic progress, achieved in this way, is the futile attempt of some men to gain at the expense of others by means of looting and plundering. This, the loot-and-plunder theory, is the alternative advocated by the critics of the misnamed trickle-down theory."
Today, "trickle-down economics" is most closely identified with the economic policies known as Reaganomics or laissez-faire. David Stockman, who as Reagan's budget director championed these cuts at first but then became skeptical of them the trickle-down idea: "It's kind of hard to sell 'trickle down,' so the supply-side formula was the only way to get a tax policy that was really 'trickle down.' Supply-side is 'trickle-down' theory.
Economist Thomas Sowell has written that the actual path of money in a private enterprise economy is quite the opposite of that claimed by people who refer to the trickle-down theory. He noted that money invested in new business ventures is first paid out to employees, suppliers, and contractors. this activity does not occur
Although the term "trickle down" is mainly political and does not denote a specific economic theory, some economic theories reflect the meaning of this pejorative. Some macro-economic models assume that a certain proportion of each dollar of income will be saved.
Critics often point to declining real wages (excluding health insurance) as a response to trickle-down economics.
The economist John Kenneth Galbraith noted that "trickle-down economics" had been tried before in the United States in the 1890s under the name "horse and sparrow theory." He wrote, "Mr. David Stockman has said that supply-side economics was merely a cover for the trickle-down approach to economic policywhat an older and less elegant generation called the horse-and-sparrow theory:'If you feed the horse enough oats, some will pass through to the road for the sparrows.'" Galbraith claimed that the horse and sparrow theory was partly to blame for the Panic of 1896.
Proponents of Keynesian economics and related theories often criticize tax rate cuts for the wealthy as being "trickle down,"
In the 1992 presidential election, Independent candidate Ross Perot called trickle-down economics "political voodoo."
In New Zealand, Labour Party MP Damien O'Connor has, in the Labour Party campaign launch video for the 2011 general election, called trickle-down economics "the rich pissing on the poor".
A 2012 study by the Tax Justice Network indicates that wealth of the super-rich does not trickle down to improve the economy

I was a worker at the camphill location in Harrisburg the surpvisor would put people to work with machines that had blades and with no experience how to operate the machine would cut off there own fingers, also the place is not safe or clean and they had machines to clean off the meat and would cause you to get wet knowing you were in a cold environment, and a lot of men supervisors flirting with women workers and people got caught using drugs in the bathroom no drug test also I've seen people coughing over the meat. The place is not clean , lots of safety violations that's why I quit. People steal from the cafeteria, not clean and they messed up my check so many times didn't pay for all my over time, when the big bosses come down they try to play all safe but once the big bosses head out they go back to there dirty ways and they have illegals working for them too.
