    Exactly what kind of jobs will they be bringing? This is a real question because I am curious. Herbalife is not regulated by the FDA. So what kind of high value jobs will be available?

    Herbalife? It's a company headquartered in the Cayman Islands, with a market cap of ~ $5 Billion... SO - how exactly will NC location's company payroll for 493 employees be MORE than $19.8 Billion per year? People in the Triad will be hurting & maiming each other to get a job there if the average pay is $40.1 Million/Year...

    OK, it says 'The California-based company is expected to employ 493 people at the facility. The spokesman said annual payroll at the company will be more than $19.8 billion.' That's $38,539,554.00 each. Sign me up!!

    It's a typo or poor reporting I'm sure, but still.......

    A bunch of short sellers are after Herbalife's stock this week. It's down by 13% so far today. I wonder if this will have an impact on the plant?

    If this dumb State lowered taxes and eliminated many other taxes, businesses would flock here without being bribed.
