MS voted to keep people in poverty the average wage at the Japanese plant is below the national average by 17K a year. They can not afford health insurance food and gas and car insurance much less support a family on the wage.

This is a corporate giveaway that the taxpayer has to pay.

Now watch for the layoffs at Cooper tire.

The plant would bring an initial 500 jobs — averaging about $35,000 a year — to the economically depressed area in Clay County, In March the area had an unemployment rate of 18.2 percent, the highest in the state. After three subsequent “phases” of expansion the company hopes to see through 2023, Yokohama would employ at least 2,000 people.

These are good jobs for a population that can just barely read...

They get fat as long as fast food is ripping them off. They also will get free government care as they can not afford health insurance. Then they will make many children so they get more government handouts, as they put the American tire manufacturer out of business and they collect unemployment. The game is work for a year and collect for two.
