About the WEDC Quad Graphics Announcemnet
So Quad Graphics already had a contract in place that would have required an expansion anyway, before they received one tax break. And if you do the math, the WEDC package translates to tax credits of $31,400 a job- well past whatever profit would be gained from hiring another employee. In addition, WEDC allows Quad Graphics 5 years to add the jobs, and I don’t see any wage requirements listed in the jobs that need to be added in order to grab these tax credits.
