Yahoo is reportedly considering moving a small chunk (more like a crumb) of their failing operations to Omaha, bringing about 50 jobs to the area with an average salary of $68,700.
Yahoo is specifically looking at a piece of property in an Omaha suburb, says the AP, confusing us. Doesn’t there have to be an urban area for there to be a suburban area? We thought the city outskirts around Omaha had a simpler name: farmland.
Apparently this is all speculation based on the fact that the company recently applied for some serious state tax breaks available in Nebraska. Nebraska Tax Commissioner Doug Ewald (we have a tax commissioner?) is quoted by the AP as saying that the application for tax breaks doesn’t guarantee Yahoo is coming to the state.
