What are your opinions of this political handout to State Street? There is no legal writing keeping them in Massachusetts or anything obligating them to hire more locals. In all likelihood, State Street will continue to outsource more and lay off more locals under the guise of "hard times" as they have been doing.

Bostonians and folk living in Massachusetts, The U$A and the World at large need to start to get hip to the possibilities of 'share-holder activism' and highly targeted 'high visibility' non-violent mass protests and actions of any description !!!

Situationist Prankster Guerillas to the fore !!

For 'The Parasitic Bankster Scum / Financial Criminals' extreme humiliation, contrition and incarceration now may prevent "sleeping with the fishes" later !

ad iudicium ...

I can't imagine anyone justifying this instance of corporate welfare. Wasn't this forum full of wingnut trolls that defended corporate welfare? Where did they all go?

There's a reason I never read the Boston Herald in all the 23 years of life I lived in Somerville, MA.

In any case, my father worked several times as a "contract" worker for State Street. This basically means my dad did full-time work for a year but without the benefits. This is the reality of the corporate world. Nobody wants to pay benefits anymore.

One of the few things we can do as a nation to combat corporate greed and the subjugation of the lower classes is to pass single-payer healthcare legislation. There's really no reason not to, since corporations aren't paying for health care anymore anyway.

If Boston ever admitted a Wal-Mart to be built in the Greater Boston area, I might never go back. It's one of my points of pride that Boston never had a Wal-Mart. In fact, I was opining this to my coworkers on Long Island today. I can't set foot inside Wal-Mart. It makes me feel embarrassed to be a human being knowing that Wal-Mart exists.
