4. Maybe we need similar movements in this country agains those corportation that pay little or no

state or local taxes. Maybe the people need to be educated about how these business get away with having little or no "cost of doing business" but return little to the communities who are suffering from lack of funds for their own people's benefit. There is also a burden to communities for sheltering big businesses in a community by way of added traffic, wear and tear on roads and bridges, air pollution, water pollution, noise etc. Is the trade off really worth it? If no locality would agree to these arrangements wouldn't it be a good thing? Most of these businesses are going to do business anyway and they need good workers to make them profitable. Why should they always unreasonable profits and get away with it?
