I didn't like that concept. However, some people want to hit them with taxes and then use the money to subsidize print media or another category of struggling business.
Apple is getting slapped for billions in tax that they should have paid Ireland. Amazon fired me and lots of other affiliates to avoid collecting tax in certain states.
The one that really burns my buns is when Pennsylvania taxpayers were volunteered by the governor to pay Royal Dutch Shell $1.65 BILLION to lure them into building a $6B facility within the borders of the state.
Wal-Mart regularly gets millions in tax breaks to lure them into building a store in specific jurisdictions. After Wal-Mart arrives, local businesses starve, the employees lose their jobs and must work at Wal-Mart for less money and see their taxes paid to the company who created their demise.
This stuff is nuts. If these huge companies can't make money on their own ventures then why are governments paying them millions to billions?
Politicians love to toss big money at giant businesses and create tax loopholes for them, but small businesses and their employees are expected to pay for it.
