    And while I don't know for a fact, I would guess that Request hires as many people of color as--say--the local Heinz factory. Holland is becoming increasingly diverse (in addition to the Latinos there are Hmong who came during the Vietnam war), and it sort of freaks people out.

    In any case, it's all about control.

    Holland has about 5 other companies--at least--that have gotten stimulus (LG Chem and Johnson Controls battery factories) or other tax credits. Nevertheless, Republicans love to go have events to talk about the power of entrepreneurs. There's a very deep denial about how being the HQ of the big GOP money in the state has gotten a lot of stimulus for such jobs.

    I suspect something similar is going on here.
