why should they receive such a huge tax credit? Zimmer's has the income to build but not to pay taxes,that's not right nor is it fair. Indiana is strapped financially and raising property taxes but giving a break to a huge business is immoral. I might add, this company only hires temps. Not only do they get to keep their revenue but they screw their employees out of a decent wage.
That is shameful and unfair. Tell me, do those CEO's also get a break on the high gas prices?

This has become standard policy in all cities. I see it all the time. Muti-millionaire owners of various companies getting sizeable tax abatements when they are very capable of paying the taxes. Most of them, once given tax abatements, laugh all the way to the bank.(or the stock market). If a person without any financial clout goes before local governments requesting an abatement, they would be turned away, or be laughed out of council chambers.

You are out of line in your accusations. Tax benefits lead companies to expand. By expanding and increasing the jobs to 140, you are helping more individuals in the company. Zimmer does not only hire temps, as I know a plethora of individuals that have been employed by the company for years. Writing false statements as you did is libel and I do not respect the way that you attacked the expansion.

Manufacturing jobs in this country staying here rather going to China? Sounds like an excellent idea to me, give them the tax credit. The politicians would just waste the revenue anyways. T
