DHL always say they are going to pull out of Wilmington unless they get what they want. They were going to not move to Wilmington if they did/nt get a tax abatement. Wilmington had to give in to their demands to keep them. There were a few other issues that I can't remember that DHL threatened to
leave if they didn't get their way.

They won't leave. They need the airport. It has one of the biggest runways in the world. They don't have the capital to build teh facilties that they have at the airborne complex. And they can bring in Bus loads of illigals to do the work without any heat from the police in town. Just empty threats.

DHL isn't going anywhere. They were at the Cincinnati airport for a long time and for years, they had problem keeping employees. When Wilmington, Clinton County Chamber of Comerence, and the State of Ohio started giving incentives, I knew we as a taxpayer where about to get screwed again.
We didn't have to give them those incentives.
If you were DHL, what would you do. Stay in Cincinnati and share the runways with Delta and have a hard time getting employees because of your past practices that people in that region have come to know over the years or Come to Wilmington where you have your own airport, plenty of willing workers that was in place, and watch the dumbasses from Clinton County just give us their money... lol... what would you choose?

Oh, I remember the good old days. Integration Day, September 9, 2005, was pretty much one of the worst days in my life. Thankfully I was working ramp, and not sort. But I still worked from sunset to sunrise. Oh well.
