Waste of money

Fabs didn't locate outside of the US for financial reasons. They don't have a burning need for bus loads of minimum wage labor. They do have a problem with the US State Department regulating what they can build for overseas customers and limits on the process size they can export. Put the fab in Malaysia and they can ship anywhere so the fab goes in Malaysia and the 20-30 people they need to run the place are not too hard to source.

These companies also don't need handouts. The current supply constraints should mean these companies are coining it big time. Why the hell does the US taxpayer need to hand them more money?
