I wonder how many current residents will land a job here. And the incentives statistics should be interesting.

Wow, great news! I assumed they were trying to extort $$$ from Jersey to stay up there.

How ironic would it be if they ended up in the space Porsche is vacating on Hammond Road?

New Jersey was throwing money at them to stay. NJ might not give up just yet.

A site for the headquarters building has not been released.
The decision comes after months of speculation that the company could relocate to either Georgia or North Carolina
which means that they are moving down here to Atlanta but don't know where,well we don't know.

I would expect about 60% of the jobs to be held by Local's, The Upper and Middle Management Will re-locate, down, The Lower level Customer Service, and "Staff" generally does not move.

Most of them are dual income workers and It can be hard for the "Other" to find jobs, when there spouse, moves. Also most of the incentives deals normally require that X Local people be hired within Y years.

They just said on 11Alive that the announcement won't be until tomorrow, according to 'sources' in Bergen County.

I'll believe it when M-B releases an official press statement.
