"The pact deprived other European countries of billions of euros in unpaid taxes" ~ Margrethe Vestager, EU Commissioner for Competition
Apple to EU: You can have taxes or you can have jobs, but you can't have both.
How much tax was paid by the employees of Apple in Ireland? Income tax, sales tax, etc from the wages earned working at the company? How much would they have paid if they didn't have those jobs?
Why should "other European countries" benefit from a country in Ireland (other than the obvious EU - and now we know why Great Britain chose Brexit!)
What are the infrastructure (roads, utilities, etc) pressures (costs) a company like Apple puts on the EU and how much is "unpaid"?
The EU's whole intent is to redistribute wealth - not create it.
