New Jobs at Polaris
So, Polaris is going to create 89 jobs at their Osceola WI assembly plant. This is great news for our poor economy. But, lets not forget this is the same company that sent 500 jobs from the same plant to Mexico and that they are getting the equivalent of nearly $7000 per job in tax breaks. This sounds like a great deal, for Polaris. Also, these jobs are for building heavy motorcycles. This is a small market unlike the atv jobs that Polaris shipped to Mexico. The heavy bike market is dependent on the economy (because they are expensive luxuries) more so than atv. Hopefully the economy is strong and the tax breaks worth it for the people of Wisconsin in the end.
