CEO of N.J. firm given $260M in tax breaks
trashes local workers as lazy, drug users

NJ.com, by Noah Cohen

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 9/14/2018 2:27:39 PM

A day after the chief executive of one of Camden´s largest employers was quoted griping about the local workforce, the city´s mayor demanded an apology over the remarks he said played to "outrageous stereotyping" of residents. In an interview with business publication ROI-NJ, Holtec CEO Krishna P. Singh said his firm has not reaped the financial rewards of a 600,000 square-foot manufacturing plant he opened in Camden. The facility was hailed as a much-needed economic engine that would create hundreds of local jobs. Then-Gov. Chris Christie´s state Economic Development Authority gave Holtec $260 million in tax breaks

Comments:
Camden´s rich vein of unskilled "workers" with no employment history can´t be bothered to show up for work, but do enjoy drugs and such. Who could have predicted this outcome in a Democrat utopia?

Welcome to the real world. It is hard to hire low skilled labor and actually have them show up. If you drug test be thrilled if you only find weed. I don´t see my comments as a reflection on the communities we draw labor from so much as a comment on the generation and our culture as a whole.

So why did he get tax breaks and what did he do to get them and what are the ramifications regarding competition.

The big visible employers have the leverage to get tax breaks so they can out run the little guy.

FTA: The NAACP chapter said it would reach out to Singh "to seek clarifications" on the issue.

Clarification? I think Mr. Singh was very clear regarding the problems he´s having with this workforce.

The work force work ethics changed in the middle 60´s And it will never be the same...that´s why everything is made in China!!! When you give your children & grandchildren everything they want without working for it & not teaching them the value of a dollar, you create dependency, laziness, lack of respect, you owe me, I´m not flipping burgers, I live in mamas basement, I´m tired attitude!!!

7 years ago, I had to go to Camden for a court event related to my late (estranged) husband. My son went with me. The place was a ghost town in the middle of the day. I would not work there.
Maybe if this place was in a safe neighborhood, there would be a better employee pool.

I´m totally against giving tax breaks to any private business. That said, I agree with the CEO that workers are lazy and drug users. But then, that´s been the policy of elected demonrats starting with the public school system - keep them dumb, lazy, and do anything that feels good, which means drugs. Oh, and tell them how special and wonderful they are. I´ve seen these products and that´s what they are - dumb, lazy and think the goobermint should provide their every comfort without having to do one single thing to earn it.

They are the advance line of the migrant caravan that Donald Trump has said is attempting an “invasion” of the US. But, as a 400-strong group of asylum-seeking Central Americans arrived in the Mexican border town of Tijuana on Saturday, they appeared more concerned with love than war. The splinter caravan – which is made up of dozens of LGBTQ+ people – was in celebratory mood as two of its members, 23-year-old Erick Dubon and Pedro Nehemias, 22, got married. The couple – originally from Honduras where same-sex unions are banned – tied the knot ahead of applying for asylum

   

 



 
Painting handed in to Dutch embassy

Investigators are examining a work of art to establish whether it is a Picasso snatched from a Dutch museum in 2012. The painting, Picasso’s Tete d’Arlequin (Harlequin’s Head) was stolen six years ago in a haul of seven valuable artworks from the Kunsthal gallery in Rotterdam. The Romanian prosecutor in Bucharest said on Sunday that officials were examining a painting that a novelist said she found under a tree after receiving an anonymous tip. The work, purported to be the stolen Picasso, was given to the Dutch embassy in Romania on Saturday. Four Romanians were convicted of stealing Tete d’Arlequin

It was the great microchip heist — a stunning Chinese-backed effort that pilfered as much as $8.75 billion in patented American technology. U.S. officials say the theft took a year to pull off and involved commercial spies, a Chinese-backed company, a Taiwanese chipmaker and employees affiliated with Micron Technology, a U.S.-based microchip behemoth. Yet what Micron called “one of the boldest schemes of commercial espionage in recent times” is most notable because it’s not unusual. Beijing over the last two years has significantly ramped up its swiping of commercial technology and intellectual property, from jet engines to genetically modified rice

Championing the cause of the poor, Pope Francis on Sunday lamented that "the wealthy few" enjoy what, "in justice, belongs to all" and said Christians cannot remain indifferent to the growing cries of the exploited and the indigent, including migrants. Francis invited about 6,000 poor people as well as some of the volunteers who help them to the splendor of St. Peter´s Basilica where he celebrated Mass on a day the Catholic Church dedicates to the needy. Later, he sat down with 1,500 of the indigent for a lunch of lasagna, chicken, mashed potatoes and tiramisu in a Vatican auditorium.

Patrons at a small bar in Pocatello, Idaho, were a bit confused as to why a stranger showed up intent on watching the Harvard-Yale football game one day in 1982. He tried to explain, but no one really paid much attention until he offered to buy all the beer. Had they been listening, they might not have believed him. He was only there because he received a cryptic phone call that consisted of just three words: "Watch the game." Still, the message was received. There was only one reason he could have received such a strange call: After four years,

Broward County’s ballot recount hit yet another snag Saturday with 2,040 ballots lost or misplaced. The county’s eternally beleaguered Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes said they were either misplaced, misfiled or mixed in with another stack. One thing she said she was sure of was that the ballots were still in the building. “The ballots are in this building. There would be nowhere else for them to be,” Snipes said. “The ballots are in the building. The ballots are in the building.” Snipes has been in the crosshairs of national controversy since Election Day. With a noon Sunday deadline looming,

A national logging organization is offering support to President Trump following catastrophic wildfires in California and a political debate over the causes of the destructive blazes. “President Trump blamed poor forest management for wildfires in California and throughout the West, and there is truth to statements he has made,” said Daniel Dructor, executive vice president of the American Loggers Council, a coalition of state and regional associations that represents independent contract loggers. “It’s time to rise above political posturing and recognize that active forest management — including logging, thinning, grazing and controlled burning — are tools that can and must

A top elections official in Florida who endured national humiliation after missing a midterms recount deadline by two minutes has told the Guardian that racism is “probably” a factor in the backlash against her. Brenda Snipes, elections supervisor of Broward county, was condemned by Republicans and Democrats after failing to submit tallies in the US Senate race between Rick Scott and Bill Nelson on schedule.

Cervical cancer is treatable. Why are

Mirebalais, Haiti — Cervical cancer is a disease that Haiti cannot afford. And in most cases, it’s a disease the country’s broken healthcare system cannot treat. There is just one MRI scanner in the entire country of 11 million people. Radiation treatment does not exist — for any kind of cancer — because there are no machines. Cancer screenings and early detection programs are limited, and so is access to lifesaving care. In a country already struggling to manage maternal deaths and childhood diseases that have been largely controlled in other parts of the world, cervical cancer is nearly always a death

Cape Town - A South African parliamentary team has recommended a constitutional amendment to make it possible for the state to expropriate land without compensation in the public interest. The Constitutional Review Committee said amending section 25 would make it explicitly clear that such expropriation could be carried out to accelerate land reform. "South Africans have spoken, loud and clear, and we listened to their cry," Lewis Nzimande, co-chairman of the review team, said in a statement on Thursday. "This has truly been a massive project.

For someone who has thrust herself on the national stage, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez sure has thin skin. The proud democratic socialist and newly elected congresswoman from New York has a knack for making confusing statements, or “word slips,” as she calls them, and is real quick to play the victim if anyone calls attention to them. Her latest flub occurred on Saturday when Ocasio-Cortez called for taking back “all three chambers of Congress,” before quickly correcting herself to say “all three chambers of government,” naming the presidency along with the House and Senate. “If we work our butts off to make

In a lengthy, taped interview that aired on Sunday, Fox News´s Chris Wallace asked President Donald Trump some expected questions -- about the Mueller investigation, "fake news," the election, the Kashoggi murder, his divisive tone -- and then came something unexpected. Wallace wondered if Trump would try to amend the Constitution so he could serve a third term. The exchange began when Wallace asked the president to rank himself "in the pantheon of great presidents." "There is Lincoln and Washington, there´s FDR and Reagan. Do you make the top 10?"

Scientists say they have uncovered how and why wombats produce cube-shaped poo - the only known species to do so. The Australian marsupial can pass up to 100 deposits of poop a night and they use the piles to mark territory. The shape helps it stop rolling away. Despite having round anuses like other mammals, wombats do not produce round pellets, tubular coils or messy piles. Researchers revealed on Sunday the varied elasticity of the intestines help to sculpt the poop into cubes. "The first thing that drove me to this is that I have never seen anything this weird in biology. That was

Sparked by his narrow defeat in a Texas Senate race, Beto O’Rourke is scrambling the 2020 presidential primary field, freezing Democratic donors and potential campaign staffers in place as they await word of his plans. Even prior to O’Rourke’s meteoric rise, many Democratic fundraisers had approached the large number of 2020 contenders with apprehension, fearful of committing early to one candidate. But the prospect of a presidential bid by O’Rourke, whose charismatic Senate candidacy captured the party’s imagination, has suddenly rewired the race.
