It was a call Larry Butler had been waiting for — an offer to work at a frozen chicken warehouse just a couple of miles down the road.

The only problem: He’d need to fill out paperwork at a staffing company 6 miles away, and he didn’t have a car. He called a friend, but his car had a flat tire. He called some others, but they couldn’t give him a ride.

When the staffing company called back, wondering where he was, Butler said he couldn’t make it. He was about to lose a job within walking distance of his apartment because he couldn’t drive across town to fill out paperwork..."

Sounds nice at first, but I just see another tax break to be exploited by businesses. If the businesses need workers, they will figure it out just like the company in the article. Every tax break handed out is money that has to be made up somewhere else. It seems every time we turn around there is a tax break for this business and that business. Funny thing is, salaried workers who aren't entrepreneurs don't seem to get tax breaks. Maybe this would work--Maybe. Perhaps a pilot program before going statewide to see if it is worth the money....because tax breaks for one group means tax increases for everyone else unless services are cut which isn't in the proposal.

It would be cheaper to give them bicyles
