Pratt & Whitney Chooses Lower-Cost North Carolina — NOT LIBERAL HIGH TAXES Connecticut — to Build a $650 Million Manufacturing Plant

You mean big corporations want to create jobs and grow where there are less taxes? Say it isn’t so America? Of course it’s so, and only liberals are dumb enough to think that these big companies are going to keep taking it up the pie hole from liberal states taxing them to death.

Pratt & Whitney will build a 1-million square foot manufacturing plant in low-cost North Carolina, investing about $650 million and creating 800 jobs through 2027, the jet engine manufacturer and state officials have announced.

Pratt & Whitney did not approach Connecticut as a possible site for expansion, said a spokesman for the Department of Economic and Community Development. Commissioner David Lehman said Raytheon Technologies has advised the state the project will not affect jobs in Connecticut.

“We have a strong and active partnership with Pratt & Whitney and its parent Raytheon Technologies Corp,” Lehman said Monday.
