You try to prove a point about fuzzy math yet assume that all 500 people working their are married and have two children?
well you would know better than us since your brother has worked there for 10 years...please ask him, do most of his co-workers have families? does your brother? just curious...
again, if Walmart can afford to pay $735,000 in income tax they can certainly afford to pay property taxes as well...I don't think they are hurting financially.
I know 6 people that he works with. 4 do not have families. 1 is divorced with 1 child and the other is married with no kids. My brother does not have a family. Though he does care for my father who is 73 but still works part time.
"again, if Walmart can afford to pay $735,000 in income tax they can certainly afford to pay property taxes as well.."
Of course they can. Though cities, towns, counties, states compete for large companies to move and grow businesses in their areas. If Los Lunas didn't offer the breaks they did Wal-Mart probably would have located somewhere else. Maybe Albuquerque or TorC or Show Low, Arizona.
There has been lots of areas around the state to give property tax breaks and other various incentives to different types of companies such as Intel. The new Lowe's call center received a $150k economic grant from County as well as a break in gross receipts taxes. I'm sure you'll be posting your disdain for those companies and tax breaks shortly, right?
As soon as I post this I will be searching for your past post with regards to Movie business tax breaks/rebates and loans also.
yes, I dislike Lowe's for that and for other reasons
Walmart probably would have located elsewhere if they weren't given tax breaks in Los Lunas? really? my goodness HOW do you know that?
did you find any posts from me re: the film industry?
leb. please don't generalize people you don't even know into political parties.
no, it isn't Gov. job to redistribute wealth, I never said it was.
I think you need a hug Lebowski, oops but that would mean somebody cares about your welfare...and we can't have that.
That was clearly the context of our conversation, government assistance...tax dollars...more tax dollars being better for the community than jobs. Again, I care about peoples welfare and I'm quite active in my charitable work. What does that have to do with not wanting the government to be in the business of charity? How does disliking social programs administered by the government = not caring about people's welfare? That's where the problem is.
well I guess if you don't like the government administering social programs you could always move to another country...
don't feed the troll...Lebowski has no interest in DCF other than starting a flame war in virtually every thread with even vaguely political content...
ok best wishes with your fight then!
