Under the Dome does a nice job examining one of Gov. Perdue’s claims in her state of the state speech from last night. Specifically, her claim that “Businesses have pledged to create 58,000 jobs and are investing $12.5 billion dollars into the Tar Heel state and our people.”
Dome is right to point out that Perdue’s claim is jobs “pledged” and based on the promises made by recipients of corporate welfare handouts. Often times, the jobs promised are never fulfilled.
Overall, North Carolina has lost nearly 130,000 jobs during Perdue’s tenure as Guv.
