Re: ''Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a wrecking ball inside the Democratic Party''

I am trying to respectful.

They claimed 25,000 jobs at an average $150K as a GOAL. It was backrooms deals, and little buy-in from all stakeholders. And it was done quickly. If it was open dialogue and pushed into specifics about who, what, and when, they would not be able to answer. So I suspect they used the local NIMBY's as an excuse and quit just as fast, because I think it was hoax.

Companies just don't hire x number of people because they have a lot of money and they have a building. They do it when they have work to get done. I have been in IT 39 years next month, 30 of those years for Fortune 500. I know how things work.

What would all these people do ? If they are IT nowadays, 80% of them are Offshore or H1-B status. Their firms get huge profit margins, the workers get 1/3rd and 2/rds respectively of the domestic salary. The rest goes to their firms like Cognizant, who are NOT in LIC. So they claim it is $150K per job, but the purchasing power is not in LIC. IT is also an overhead expense that does not grow proportionately with sales volume.

Who else could it be ? Lawyers ? Finance Department - that's also an overhead expense. Sales ? Maybe. It's not a warehouse.

Then there's the tax breaks. They run for x number of years and when X number of years are done, they leave town for the next city that bribes them. Look at what NS Railway is doing with HQ's and Dispatching centers. They keep moving. They have no commitment to any place.
