It doesn't quite add up to me.

Wages are higher than elsewhere, which is why these plants are normally built elsewhere. So, NY comes up with a subisidy to counter that cost for AMD. But, then State Senator Joseph L. Bruno claims they will get the money back.

So, where does that "money back" actually come from?

The taxes on the wages earned by the 1,200 new jobs created by the plant, and the taxes on the things those 1,200 new wage-earners will purchase.
