WEDC means hundreds of millions for a few thousand jobs

At the end of 2013, WEDC told the Legislature and the public it had “impacted” 37,313 jobs. No actuals were included in the report to the Legislature, but its official database includes documentation for 4,796 “actual” jobs.

To create those jobs over a two-year period, some $203 million in taxpayer money went out the door in grants, loans and bonding authority.
