One thought on “NECC President Glenn Hosts ‘Coffee with the CEO’

  1. For any business owner who attends this meeting who has to work your butt off to pay yearly Massachusetts corporate excise taxes, outrageous Massachusetts corporate filing fees, property taxes and the whole host of other taxes and fees …. Ask Lane Glenn why he has step up a program to allow residents of the Dominican Republic to easily transfer credits to NECC ? Glenn has set up a program that allows citizens of the DR to easily transfer credits to NECC with the sole purpose of facilitating them getting a degree there. NECC is a state funded college which is being paid for by the taxes paid by business owners throughout the state. The officials of the DR who set up this program with Glenn have proudly stated that it is their goal to educate their citizens in the USA for the sole purpose of their getting jobs in the USA, not in the DR. Glenn is using state taxpayer funds to assist citizens of other countries not just to be educated here, but to take jobs of Americans.

    Business owners….is this really what you work your butt off for?
