Dell abandoning W-S plant

According to the N&R, 905 people are going to lose their jobs.  Dell was given a $242 million incentives package with a law especially created for them in a special session.  Didn’t they do something very similar just this past session for tire manufacturers??  Is Dell going to give back the tax rebates that the state forked over to them now that they are closing the plant?  According to the N&R, Bev Perdue said in a statement: “The Dell plant closure shows why we must continue to fight for economic recovery here in North Carolina.”  WHAT?  Throwing money at big business didn’t work before, why should we believe it will work in the future?
