About those Whirlpool layoffs in Iowa we reported yesterday (look below)...
The Des Moines Register tells us that just last year the Iowa state and county government gave MILLIONS to Whirlpool, the corporation that never stops taking


"Last year the Iowa Department of Economic Development approved a $6.5 million forgivable loan to Whirlpool. Iowa County also granted the corporation $1.5 million. The money was expected to be invested in upgrading equipment, improving production processes and making the plant more energy efficient."
