Local politicos and the Chamber of Commerce are first to take credit when a company moves to Boise with JOBS! What about when business LEAVES town?
Will they also take the blame now that Supervalu has announced about 400 jobs will be cut in Boise as a result of the Albertson’s take over? Will those legislators, ex- Guv Dirk and Team Dave admit they got snookered with the “incentives” they offered to Albertson’s?
Truth is, business is business and the bottom line is the bottom line. Business comes and goes based on the money. The efforts of Team Dave and the Chamber may have helped Northwest Airlines with ticket sales when the delegation went back to Minneapolis for “face time” with the Supervalu CEO, but it did nothing to stop the sucking sound when local jobs went down the drain.
Joe, we miss ya!
