Thanks to the charming business climate offered to employers in New York State, yet another news story like this emerges. I wonder whey they didn't move the 650 people from Indiana to New York? Anyone? Hello? Anyone?
Anyone in Albany watching and listening?

Or are they all busy passing "living wage" legislation?

Of course, there's no connection between 'living wage' legislation and a story like this, right?

I can not blame companies for pulling out of NY. If they stay they will most likely face bankruptcy as our incompetent and corrupt government has increased taxes and fees so high as to destroy any chance of success for these businesses.

Payroll taxes, taxes on health insurance, increased income, property, and sales taxes. Increased fees on everything. High number of costly lawsuits.

This is all done to pay off the union workers who continue to negotiate this state into oblivion and economic collapse.
