changing shirts
 n.— «The most criticized part of the program was one that allowed companies to merely re-incorporate under a new name, move into a zone and claim benefits for creating new jobs. A 2005 law overhauling the programs outlawed that practice, known as “changing shirts.”» —“State faces problems in getting subsidies returned” by Jay Gallagher in Albany Press & Sun-Bulletin (Binghamton, New York) July 18, 2007.
