We haven’t quite hit our goal of raising $10,000 and unlocking a dollar-for-dollar match from a generous Good Jobs First supporter – but with your help, we can get it done today. 

Unsure how much to give? We have suggestions!

$1,064 for the 1,064 federal, state and local incentive programs captured in our Subsidy Tracker;

$658 for the average cost per job of subsidy megadeals we track, which on average cost taxpayers $658,000 per job!

$400 for the over 400 federal, state and local regulators and prosecutors in Violation Tracker;

$77 to support adding new GASB Statement 77 on Tax Abatement Disclosures data (we just celebrated five years’ worth of records!)

$51 for the 50 states plus DC we have cajoled to disclose their subsidies online;

$14 for the $14 billion we documented in electric vehicle/battery factory subsidies, fuel for campaigns seeking stronger worker and planet protections in exchange for the taxpayer support;

$10 for our “Ten Years is Enough” of Amazon mega-subsidies campaign, spotlighting the lavish deals the company has squeezed from communities;

5 minutes of your time, to write a brief email telling us how Good Jobs First data and resources has helped you. Send it to: [email protected].

And remember, every dollar you donate right now is DOUBLED.

Whatever you choose to give or do, thank you. We couldn’t do it without you.
