Data centres are not big employers anyway. Operations and much of the maintenance can be done remotely from anywhere in the world. They are pretty much a lights-out operation. Only a few people are needed locally for physical hardware replacement etc.

Of course they are huge power consumers, and I'm sure most of those negotiations would be around getting that electric power for free.

I don't see why a data centre needs an expressway nearby.
