When GM was looking for a place for their Saturn plant, FIVE governors were offering endless subsidies to get the plant to come to their state. These same governors were even on Phil Donohue begging GM to come there.
And that's just one example.
But don't worry, These days the domestics are closing plants since they can't compete. Meanwhile, Toyota just broke ground on another one.

Read the book "Rivethead" about assembly line workers in the 1970's and early 1980's and then get back to us about why the domestics lost market share.
Funny how being drunk and high, not to mention having no quality controls whatsoever (the book points out where one Suburban got 10 rivets on a certain panel, another got 3 - all dependent on how sober the worker was) leads to class leading vehicles - NOT.
