You move your HQ to some other place and you bring employment there. As such, if you bring enough people there, you have more clout to ask for more concessions. When you buy 1 car, you are Mr Nobody. Buy 10 cars, you will demand a better rate than someone who buys 1 car, won't you? If so, why do you begrudge Boeing for doing the same? They move there, they bring employment. They do more for the city than to set up a small store.
Again, if you get paid more somewhere else, won't you go there? Most people would. So why begrudge them?
