“Camden Not Rising (official video), Gary GSAM Samuels,
August 18, 2019 This video shows just a short version of some of the truths about Camden NJ. Camden has been robbed by politicians as well as corporations claiming to come to Camden (receiving Tax Breaks) but not hiring Camden Residents….” from video description: https://youtu.be/oNGeaTO8ooA
Holtec Nuclear was given a $260 million tax break over the course of 10 years, in exchange for a promise of creating 250 jobs in the City of Camden NJ. That is a over a million dollars per job. That is over $100,000 per job per year over the course of 10 years. A lot could be done to help Camden for that amount. Meanwhile Holtec continues to apply to import foreign workers, both temporary and permanent, and advertises little for the permanent positions: https://lcr-pjr.doleta.gov/index.cfm?event=ehLCJRExternal.dspQuickCertSearch
Governor Murphy of NJ recently put the tax break on hold pending investigation.
