    Joliet Mayor Tom Giarrante's follies

    Illinois has one of the highest workmans compensation insurance costs in the nation. There are considerable costs to locate there to do business.
    I saw where the Governor recently gave millions to Fiat, a foreign corporation, just to keep some dumb UAW plant in Belevedere from relocating. Illinois now has to rob the taxpayers to buy jobs for the dumb assemblers it seems.
    What a cesspool and I dont see andy new plants opening in that dump for a very long time without more bribes

    • cindybinxxx: It was not too many days ago that you explained the corporations are global and so do not owe loyalty to anyone country. Is Fiat a foreign corporation or a global corporation?

      The insinuation that union workers are the only ones in Illinois to file workman comp. claims is ludicrous.

      Once again I reiterate: cindybinxxx = moron.

    • Bribes, kick backs, 'pay to play' in Illinois__come on are you suggesting Ill has a corruption issue. Only two govenors currently in prison!
