The Post-Standard reports that DaimlerChrysler (DCX) paid the state of New York $1.5 million as a penalty for not providing 300 new jobs at the automaker's New Process Gear plant. DCX had made a promise to provide the jobs back in 2002 in order to obtain a $2.5 million grant from the state.
DCX is not alone, however -- over 160 other companies have to pay a penalty for lack of jobs. $1.5 million, though, is the second largest penalty of this type ever imposed by the state.
