Listen to Enterprise Florida's Kentucky job-poaching commercial

Posted By on Fri, Sep 25, 2015 at 12:49 PM


Gov. Rick Scott traveled to Kentucky earlier this week on a job-poaching mission. He and staff from the public-private economic development organization Enterprise Florida headed to the state of "unbridled spirit," to try to coax business leaders to relocate to Florida. At the top of his list of reasons they might consider Florida: it's cheap, we're a "right to work" state (read, you can exploit workers and get away with it here) and we don't like unions! 

Enterprise Florida even crafted a radio message to that effect, which aired in Kentucky this week. Here's the script: 

And now an important message from the state of Florida.

Are Frankfort's pro-union and big government policies hurting your business? Good news is on the way.

Florida Governor Rick Scott is coming to Kentucky to share Florida's success story.

As a right-to-work state, with no income tax, Florida is ranked #2 by CEO's for its business environment.
