Kellogg’s announced that it is adding 180 jobs to its manufacturing plant in Cary, and guess how much in incentives it is receiving from the state or Wake County?
They didn’t ask, and it wasn’t offered. Instead, they made the decision based on economics and the overall appeal of the location. They didn’t have to be bribed.
Check out this golden quote:
The company chose to expand the Cary plant because that’s where it was already producing products that are selling well.
It’s refreshing to see this after the week we’ve had, but then again, this is how most jobs in this state are created — without bribes and blackmail and horrific distortions to the free market.
Kudos to Kellogg’s for doing things the right way. I may just have to go buy a box of Cheez-Its to show my appreciation.
