Description

Economic incentives are touted as crucial to North Carolina's plan to get people back to work - and they cost taxpayers millions in the process. But policymakers on both sides of the aisle clash over whether these cash grants really help solve the problem of unemployment and promote growth in the state. WRAL News dug into the data to find out whether these programs perform as promised, where the tax dollars go and why state leaders say they're reluctant to roll back the programs despite their own opposition to “corporate welfare.”
