I hope they hire local, legal workers at livable wages.
This would have been a good site for the Sheriffs or Fire department.
Close to the freeway and Soquel Dr as well as the hospital.
Could put the Bus yard here too.
Buy local goods.
Local, legal workers at living wages? Are you nuts or naive?
Remember when America used to be run by Mom & Pop stores that met the needs of the market?
They were able to work hard & create a sustainable middle class lifestyle, raise a family & buy a house. They were the backbone of U.S. society & no company or outfit was any more important than any other.
Later, as America lost its moral compass, the "too big to fails" took over Congress with lobbyists, and they received special treatment & bigger tax breaks, especially when they off-shored millions of U.S. jobs all for the sake of the bottom line.
There's a positive feedback loop in concentrating wealth & political power; the more money one acquires, the more political power they can purchase, which enables the accumulation of even more wealth as the state/financial elites shower each other with benefits.
Now we're left with a two-tiered society: the have's & the have nots.
Today, Mom & Pop work at Wal-Mart, with zero health insurance, are paid a butt low wage stocking shelves at 2 am & live in Section 8 Housing. They're incomes are in fact so low that they qualify for ultra low income health care all paid for not by Wal-Mart but by the tax payers themselves. Pretty sweet deal.
Just imagine, making my last point, is if people were offered a living wage, maybe they wouldn't need to buy garbage that will only last one year made in China at big box stores.
I say reinvest in your community, those are the people who are your neighbors, not the "too big to fails" who are depending on you to purchase their cheap crap so they can send their kids on safaris every summer to Kenya.
