National Cash Register Sneaks Off To Georgia—The Advantages Of Treating People Like Dirt For 200 Years

File:Dayton Skyline.jpg

The National Cash Register (NCR) company is relocating it’s corporate headquarters from Dayton, Ohio to Georgia.

For many years NCR made cash registers. Today they also make, among other things, ATM machines  and barcode scanners.

An additional profit center for the company is scamming tax-breaks from taxpayers as NCR moves jobs from a community that has long supported the company.

( Above–Dayton, Ohio. Please click here to learn about visiting Dayton.)

National Cash Register has been in Dayton since 1884. Dayton will lose over 1,200 jobs because of the move.

After all those years in Dayton, and despite the job losses in an already suffering community,NCR officials would not even return the phone calls of officials in Dayton and with the State of Ohio.

Georgia’s conservative Republican Governor Sonny Perdue offered NCR a $60 million package of incentives.

I’m sure Governor Perdue would not call it socialism.

The CEO of NCR, Bill Nuti, said that the cost of living in Georgia had some impact on the decision to relocate the firm.

It’s a wonder what 200 years of racial apartheid, keeping your white folks uneducated, offering poor government services and union busting can do for your economic climate.

Here is a viewpoint on Governor Perdue’s recent backing of a Confederate History/Heritage Month in Georgia. 

Here is an excellent report on the economic fate of Dayton from a diary on Daily Kos.  The factory jobs are gone and no realistic replacement for these jobs exists.    

Will President Obama ever question and challenge our economic system to the point where we have jobs for the jobless and where we stop poaching jobs from one state to another based on unfair advantages and secret deals?

  1. georgia can have them they are staying in the country so that is half the battle. dhl is moving back to cvg and delta is the devil. maybe if ohio voted in some good dealmakers we would have more jobs. cincinnati has no leadership hamilton co. has nothing and the state of ohio is like a tired beaten boxer waiting for the knockout punch.

  3. NCR will keep the jobs in the U.S. as long as it serves them to do so.

    A tired boxer still needs a job when his career in the ring is done.

  4. we to will stay in the u.s. as long as it serves us. if there was a better place to live and we could afford to live there or have a better oppertunity we would go. it kind of like staying in the city, when everything points to the suburbs i stay in the city for many reasons most of them due to pure loathing of the suburbs but some are self serving. as far as the tired boxer i am not sure what job will suit him. selling grills on tv or letting business slip out of his hands because he is ignorant or to conservative. ohio needs to take stock and voters need to be more involved and dedicated to ohio. the last election was better response from voters but still too many looking for the winning lottery ticket or hand out vs working and working and working like i do to stay afloat.

  5. We might go somewhere else and work hard to make it there. It’s easy to go somewhere and do well when you getting a $60 million break at taxpayer expense.

    Ohioans have much hard work ahead. It is true that many will not take the steps they need to take, but when you’ve done something one way all your life it can be hard to shift without some leadership and support.

    This mix of leadership and individauls taking the right steps will be hard to find but you’ve got to keep hope that it will be found.

  7. Perdue is a smart businessman! That small tiny piece of pork will create more jobs in Georgia. We enjoy bringing jobs to the South. The South is going to have open arms to this company. NCR, thank you!
