Can Mississippi go broke buying jobs. Do the math. 1,300 jobs will cost the state and local government $38million. That's $29,231 per job.

And of the 1,300 jobs at Cooper Tire, how many will be contracted through JESCO so that a significant part of the worker's pay is cut off the top to make the board of directors at JESCO wealthy?

The unions can't touch the easy money deals that Mississippi corporations offer their local Boss Hogg mafias. And the Daily Urinal wants the struggling families in this area to pay taxes to keep the big bucks flowing to JESCO.
