Kansas should have been targeting Proctor and Gamble with Star bonds to keep that factory open at the expense of some other factory some where else. Instead they work on attracting a south KCMO company to move 6 blocks. I'm sad about this - one of KC's old manufacturers is leaving. Couple that with Harley Davidson and the sell of DST and KC has had some bad economic news lately.

^Good point.

This is a blow as KC hasn't quite recovered manufacturing jobs from 2008 hit but is the case with most Midwest cities, even MSP hasn't recovered yet...

The Full Employment Council thinks those losing their jobs won't have an issue finding another but it's pretty clear that KC is transitioning more and more as white collar and STEM. KC is well above US avg in Pro Biz Services/STEM growth.

This has nothing to do with P&G's plant or even anywhere close by. Cmon dude...

Completely agree that this would have been better than that HCA deal. That said, I can't imagine that even with incentives KS would have saved that many jobs. I'ts not like P&G is hard up for profit, they're just looking to scrape every dollar they can. Easily could picture it being like the infamous Carrier deal in Indiana where they get $$$ only to still eliminate 2/3rds of the jobs later.

http://ahprd1cdn.csgpimgs.com/d2/v_7mMf ... cument.pdf National Chain to be annouced soon so it could be Menards but doesn't look like a Menards and also making progress on Junior Anchors hopefully new to KCK or KC area yet like Here Today or Fresh Thyme Market or Academy Sports and Outdoors,Field and Stream,Meijer,Shopko or Burlington Coat Factory or Ramey Price Cutter,Winco,Albertsons or so on.
