Iowa Progress: 1 News Day = Lots of Bad News for Vilsack
Excerpted from this post at Iowa Progress
Rubbermaid announced last night that it will be moving 500 jobs from Centerville (population 6,000) to Kansas. The company turned down the offer of a $1 million tax break under Vilsack's Iowa Values Fund, and executives explained that they believe there are more opportunities for expansion in Kansas. Vilsack's statement, issued this afternoon, doesn't seem very reassuring to the hundreds of Iowans finding their jobs in jeopardy lately.
